A lamp that simulates a tropical reef has been recalled following reports that it sparked or overheated while it was plugged in.

About 3,600 aquarium motion lamps sold by Melville Direct are affected by the recall.

The plug-in lamp contains no water and lights illuminate colorful fish and dolphins that swim back and forth with a 3D effect. Style 45458 is printed on the original box.

The lamp was sold exclusively through the Bits and Pieces catalogue and online from Sept. 1, 2014 through Jan. 9, 2015 for about $30.

Melville Direct is contacting customers whose lamp shipped after Sept. 1, 2014. The letter includes a return form and a merchandise return label. Customers should complete the return form and affix the postage-paid return label to the outside of the box. Customers can also contact Melville Direct to receive the form and label. In the interim, customers should unplug the lamp.
