"This recall involves plastic Halloween-themed lanterns designed to resemble a pumpkin, ghost and skull," a statement from the CPSC says. The lanterns are about 6.5 inches tall and were sold in orange, white and black.

The bulb in the lanterns can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers, according to the agency. No injuries have been reported.

The lanterns were sold from August to October at Dollar Tree, Dollar Bill$, Occasions, Deal$ and Dollar Tree Deal$ stores nationwide.

"Consumers should take the recalled lanterns away from children immediately, remove and properly discard the batteries and return the lanterns to the store where purchased for a full refund," the CPSC said.

The model number -- 954439-13096-003-1005 -- is printed on a label on the bottom of the lanterns.
