On May 23, 2012, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and L G Sourcing, Inc. issued a voluntary recall of LED clip-on desk lamps due to a potential shock hazard. The lamps were sold exclusively at Lowe’s stores nationwide.
About the Desk Lamp Recall
These lamps pose a serious risk because the power cord for the lamp can detach where it meets the clamp, exposing wires and posing an electric shock hazard to consumers. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there have been five reports of cords detaching, including one reported electric shock. Also, there has been one report of a child receiving burns to the hand and leg.
