Hanging Lights

The lights and decorations have been gone for weeks now but there are some items you don't want to store for next year. The U-S Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling the Mini-light and Chasing light sets sold at Target. The lights pose an electric shock and fire hazard because of undersized and exposed wires. The recall includes the 50 count multi-color mini light sets, 100 count blue mini light sets and 140 count chasing light sets. You can return the lights to Target for a gift card.

Tree Topper

A Spinning Star Christmas Tree Topper can melt or smoke near the "on-off" switch, posing a fire hazard. So Family Dollar stores are recalling the tree topper which sold from September 2005 through December 2005 for about $8. The topper is a plastic star with a gold or silver metallic finish. XMAS LED spinning tree top is written on the box. You can return the star to Family Dollar for a refund.

Child Toys
