BETHESDA, Md. (March 26, 2014) — In this week’s Recall Roundup, over 100,000 dolls sold at Wal-Mart are being recalled due to burn hazards.  There are reports of injuries involved in this recall.

Additionally, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced recalls for another item this week: clamp lights sold at Ace Hardware.

Here is a look at the recalls, beginning with the aforementioned dolls.

Wal-Mart – My Sweet Love / My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care Baby Doll — The circuit board in the chest of the doll can overheat, causing the surface of the doll to get hot, posing a burn hazard to the consumer.  About 174,000 units are impacted in this recall.  Wal-Mart has received 12 reports of incidents, including two reports of burns or blisters to the thumb.  Consumers should immediately take the dolls from children, remove the batteries and return the doll to any Walmart store for a full refund.  Click here for more information on this recall.

Ace Clamp-On LED Work Lights — The cord bushing inside the light base could fail, allowing the cord wiring to pull out of the base, exposing bare wire and presenting a shock and fire hazard.  About 15,000 units are impacted in this recall.  Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled clamp lights and return them to the local Ace Hardware store for a full refund.  Click here for additional information on this recall.
