An electrical short circuit in the night light can cause it to overheat and smolder or melt, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.
Three AmerTac night lights are being recalled.
Only models bearing "SY" on the back are being recalled.
Amerelle, Amertac and Everyday Basics are affected.
They were sold at Hardware stores, home centers and lighting showrooms from March 2009 through October 2010 for about $6.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled night lights, remove them from the wall sockets and contact the firm for instructions on receiving a full refund.
