Dollar Tree is recalling nearly 700,000 Halloween-themed battery-powered lanterns over concerns they could start fires, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The plastic lanterns were molded to look like either a pumpkin, ghost or skull. The CPSC said the bulbs can overheat and Dollar Tree said it received a complaint about one overheating.
