Bulk Unlimited of Brooklyn, N.Y., is recalling about 3,000 Little Experimenter children’s globes.
The globe’s internal wires can short out and overheat, posing fire and burn hazards.
The company has received two reports of the globe overheating with one igniting. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves children’s Little Experimenter 3-in-1 World globes that show the countries in different colors, the oceans in blue and black text for each country, capitals, deserts and ocean names.
They have an orange base with two white buttons that light up the globe and display a projection of stars and constellations in color-changing motion. Little Experimenter is printed on the base of the Globe.
Date Code 102018-107 is printed on a sticker on the battery compartment cover and on the product packaging right below the UPC or barcode.
The globes, manufactured in China, were sold online at Amazon, eBay and Littleexperimenter.com from October 2018, through January 2019, for about $30.

Consumers should immediately take away the recalled globes from children, stop using them and contact Bulk Unlimited to receive a free replacement globe. Bulk Unlimited is contacting all known purchasers directly.
