Halo recalls projector headlights for children due to button battery consumption, choking hazard

Halo recalls its projector headlights for children due to the risk of ingestion and suffocation.

According to the recall notice, a child can disassemble the projector flashlight and access the button cell batteries, which poses a danger of ingestion and suffocation.

This recall involves five models of children’s projector lights: Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Avengers and ESPN. They have a keychain at one end and a flashlight projector at the other end. The model name is printed on the center of the flashlight. The flashlights are red, dark blue or light blue. They measure 3 inches long and 0.5 inches in diameter.

The recalled flashlights were part of a Disney-branded care package that also includes a tote bag, silicone bracelet, playing cards, ink pen, journal, wall decals and a set of postcards. There are four button cell batteries with model number LR41 inside the flashlight.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled projector flashlight away from children, stop using it and contact Halo for a full refund and a prepaid shipping label to return the projector flashlight. Upon return, Halo sends the consumer a $ 5 gift card, which can be redeemed at a major national retailer.

The company has received two reports of children gaining access to the button cell batteries from the flashlight, and in one case, a child required surgery to remove a swallowed battery.
