Dollar Tree recalls projection flashlights due to burn hazard

Dollar Tree is recalling 275,000 projection flashlights due to a potential burn hazard from the batteries and bulb overheating. The flashlights come in the styles of Wolverine, Spiderman and Iron Man 2. They are about six inches long and have five different covers with images that can be projected onto a wall or ceiling.

No injuries have been reported, but there have been two incidents, one in which the flashlight battery caught on fire and one in which the flashlight melted.

The flashlights were sold at Dollar Tree stores nationwide from August 2010 for $1. The back of the package has the numbers: 16879-20012-003-1003 and UPC 6 39277 16879 5. Contact Dollar Tree at 800-876-8077, or visit their website at dollartree.com.
