(WBNG Binghamton) More than 315,000 electroluminescent night lights have been recalled by Molenaar LLC of Minnesota.

The night lights can become hot to the touch and melt, resulting in risk of possible shock or fire.

The firm is aware of 4 incidents of the night lights melting, resulting in minor property damage. No injuries have been reported.

Two models of the night lights are being recalled. One model, Model No. 2019, is shaped like a house.

The other, Model No. 2017, is square-shaped with a rounded top. The night lights glow green when plugged into an electrical outlet.

“71980 U.S.A.” is molded into the night light’s back panel, just above the brass outlet prongs.

The night lights may have the brand names or logos of various companies printed on the front.

The recalled night lights were distributed free as promotional products by various companies imprinted with various company names between October 2001 and November 2009.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled night lights and throw them away.
