OK, this is scary. If you bought your kids Halloween Flashlights, thinking that would keep them safe while trick-or-treating, check the brand. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission and Target just recalled 610,000 of these flashlights – both the mini kind and those sold with stencils – because they overheat and melt. There have been eight reports of molten flashlights, including one that actually burned the child’s hand. Follow the link for details on specific model numbers. But if you’ve got one, purchased in August and September of this year, return it to any Target for a full refund.
