The bulbs can overheat when the lights are plugged into an outlet and pose burn or fire hazards, the CPSC said.

The recall covers Bunkhouse and Lotsa lights that came on a nine-foot strand of 20 LED clear bulbs.

They work with batteries or USB.

They came in three varieties:

  • Everyday - SKU: BHSTL24
  • Christmas - SKU: XSTL24
  • Halloween - SKU: HSTL24

The numbers are on the back of the packaging.

The lights were sold at gift stores and boutiques across the country from August 2023 to September 2023 for between $10 and $13, the CPSC said.
