About 2.3 million Christmas lights are being recalled because they could pose a fire hazard or shock a user, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The lights were sold at Hobby Lobby stores in the U.S. from June 2006 through early December 2006 for between $2.50 and $10.
The CPSC has received one report of a consumer receiving a mild shock from the string of lights. The company has also learned of one incident of the wires melting.
Consumers should stop using the lights and return them to the nearest Hobby Lobby store for an exchange.
For more information on the lights involved in the recall, check the company website.
