The following recall has been announced:

A circular fan vent is underneath the lamp. An on/off switch, power cord and a knob with the word "FUSE" written in white are on the back of the lamp. The arena lamps are also called Disco Lights, Disco Light Projectors and Arena Light Kaleidoscopes. They were manufactured in China.
