2011 Year in Review: Product Safety
Camsing Global Issues Night Light Recall
In September, the CPSC cooperated with supplier Camsing Global in issuing a recall of about 10,000 nightlights, which were reported to have overheated and melted in some instances. Speaking with Promo Marketing, Camsing Global president Jason Miller explained that the products were made by Adva-Lite prior to that company's acquisition and that Camsing Global voluntarily initiated the recall as soon as they were made aware. "It was resolved back in April, May and June," Miller said, adding that the September press release was issued by the CPSC to try and get the rest. "We've already gotten back 3,000 or 4,000, based on us getting on top of it right away. And we've worked directly with the 15 distributors who were impacted by this," he said.
