A California company has agreed to recall 13 million disposable cigarette lighters because of ineffective child-proof mechanisms, federal safety regulators said Tuesday. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Gladstrong Investments USA of Hacienda Heights, California, had received a report of a 4-year-old girl who died after starting a fire with one of the lighters and then hiding in a closet.
