The UPC number is printed on the label located on the bottom of the lamp.

The $13 children's lamps were sold nationwide at Target stores from January 2011 to April 2011. 

Target has received six reports of the lamp socket melting, but no reports of injuries.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says you should stop using the Circo Children's Task Lamp immediately, and return it to a Target store to receive a full refund.
