Ikea Recalls Floor and Table Lamps
March 21, 2016,
NEW YORK—Ikea is recalling more than 30,000 floor and table lamps due to a shock hazard, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Gothem floor and table lamps pose a danger because cables damaged during manufacturing can come in contact with the metal body of the lamp, posing a shock hazard to consumers. Three reports of minor shock have been received worldwide, the CPSC said.
The 30,600 affected lamps were made in China, are brush-finished nickel plated and have a dimmer switch. The floor lamp is 49 inches tall, and the table lamps are 14 or 18 inches tall. “Gothem” and the IKEA logo are printed on the label attached to the underside of each lamp base. They were sold at Ikea stores nationwide and online at ikea-usa.com from October 2015 through February 2016 for between $20 and $50.
