Name of product: Eddie Bauer Propane Lanterns

Hazard: The lanterns could produce high levels of carbon monoxide (CO), posing a risk of CO poisoning to consumers if the lantern is used indoors.

Description: The Eddie Bauer lantern, sold exclusively at Target stores, is ocean blue with two mantles. It has a glass globe, electronic ignition, and an extra-large hood and handle. When assembled, the lantern sits on a plastic base that houses the propane fuel cylinder. The "Eddie Bauer" name appears on the front of the product on an oval panel immediately below a black on/off switch. The Wenzel Company produces the lantern under license with Eddie Bauer.
