Product Recall: Nightlight Recall
I do not usually post product recalls, but in this case, I know several people who use this type of nightlight. Since it is being recalled because it is a fire hazard,
I want to share the information with you folks too.
My sister keeps up with Product Recalls and tells me when something may be of special interest to me or to my friends.
