A San Juan, Puerto Rico based company has issued a voluntary recall of its Christmas Lights after learning “the light string can overheat and catch fire, posing fire and shock hazards to consumers.” Specifically, the retailer, Pepe Ganga Corp., recalled its “100 Musical Lights.” The light set, manufactured in China, is comprised of 100-bulb musical Christmas multi-colored lights that twinkle as eight Christmas carols play. To learn more about the recalled product’s description, including model numbers, please click on the link above. The recalled product, which reportedly includes around 500 units, was sold from December 2011 through October 2012 for $8 at Pepe Ganga and Compra De To stores in Puerto Rico. To date, the company has not received any reports of incidents or injuries associated with the recalled product. Consumers who may be in possession of the recalled product are advised to cease use immediately and return the product to any Pepe Ganga store for a full refund. For more information, the company can be contacted at (855) 751-4532.
