Halo is recalling five models of its children’s projector flashlights because the company has received two reports of children accessing the button cell batteries and in one case swallowing them.

The child who swallowed the battery required surgery to remove it.

The company says the models include it’s Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Avengers, and ESPN projector flashlights. They have a key chain on one end and a flashlight projector on the other end.

The flashlights were part of a Disney-branded care package that Starlight Children’s Foundation (“Starlight”) distributed to hospitals and healthcare facilities between February 2021 and June 2021 free of charge.

The firm advises that consumers should immediately take the recalled projector flashlight away from children, stop using it, and contact Halo for a full refund and a pre-paid shipping label to return the projector flashlight.

Upon return, Halo will send a $5 gift card redeemable at a major national retailer.
