Isn't this a very pretty torch lamp?
Well, if you bought one or more from Big Lots they are recalled!
Sorry folks, there is nothing pretty about a picnic ending tragically and having your lighted torch lamp spray cirtonella oil and fire all over your kids or guests. There have been reports of serious burns to victims and property damage.
You can see the photo above, courtesy of the CPSC, now here is the specifics to further identify the product in question. Quote, "“Table Top Torch distributed by Big Lots!, Inc.” and item #DC12-21111 (large torch) or Item #DC10-20160 (small torch) is printed on a yellow label on the bottom of the large torch and on a hang tag on the small torch. "
These lamps, responably priced from $8 to $20 wer sold at BIG LOTS! stores from March to June 2013. They were manufactured inIndia.
Stop using this lamp immediately. Do not take a chance and try to use them even if they seemed to work fine before!

The Consumer Product Safety Commision sends out alerts and press releases as a public service announcement and so do I. Many dangerous reaclled items get overlooked by consumers who have these very same recalled products. So, even though alert have gone out to the public, not every one knows about each recall.
In the interest of keeping our kids and families safe, I, write up my own twist on the recalls hoping and praying more people are alerted to unsafe producst and share that information with every one they know.
Please share this recall information either from my blog post, here, or diretly from the CPSC at this link:
Hopefully more sotres will get inot the habit of posting sings about recalls products. Please remember that once an item is reaclled, it stays recalled.
