The plastic lanterns are shaped like a pumpkin, ghost or skull.

Officials said the bulb can get too hot, causing fires or children to get burned.

The government also said parents should look for flame-resistant /*costumes*/ without baggy sleeves, long capes or long skirts that could catch fire or cause children to trip.
