A Target lamp has been recalled after manufacturers report that there is a fire and shock hazard.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Target received six reports of short circuiting, which resulted in fires and minor property damage for the white Threshold 2-bulb floor lamp -- model number PL1071. Two consumers also reported being shocked.

CPSC said consumers should unplug the lamp, and return it to any Target store for a full refund.

I read the Consumer Product Safety Commission's report on the lamp and discovered that the lamp is made in China. Perhaps Target can explore the possibility of favoring products made in America by Americans.
