Southwire recalls Moonrays mystic globe and snow globe stake lights

Southwire recalls Moonrays mystic globe and snow globe stake lights due to light refraction through the stake lights can singe or melt items in contact with or in the immediate proximity, posing a fire hazard.

This recall involves Moonrays brand large mystic globe and winter-themed snow globe stake lights. The lawn and garden decorations are plastic globes mounted on a metal stake that can be inserted into the ground. Water and antifreeze allows glitter inside the globe to float. The winter-themed light stake is framed by a snowman, Christmas Tree, Santa Claus or reindeer. The solar powered lights also contain LED bulbs that run on AA NI-cd or AA-NI-Mh rechargeable batteries. 

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled stake lights and contact Southwire to return the product for a refund.

Consumers can contact Southwire toll-free at 888-847-8709 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET, online at, or and click on "Product Recall" for more information.
