usually recalls, sometimes other stuff

Recall on children's Halloween lanterns by Dollar Tree because of fire and burn hazards.  They were sold at Dollar Tree, Dollar Bill$, Occasions, Deal$ and Dollar Tree Deal$ stores nationwide from August 2010 to October 2010 for about $1.

It's interesting because I bought this lantern. Once it was home I wasn't in a hurry to use it for some weird reason. I didn't even try to put batteries in it until Halloween night and boy was that a job. They barely fit and I had to use a knife to pry them out. I'm glad I didn't have it on more than a few seconds at a time. Thanks for posting this or I would have had no idea.

Your welcome.  I bought it too but never used it.  When I read the recall, I got up and threw it away.
