IKEA Expands Recall of Children’s Wall-Mounted Lamps
IKEA has expanded their December 2013 recall of children’s wall-mounted lamps to include more models.
The recall has been issued due to the risk of strangulation posed by the 7-8 foot-long electrical cord that hangs from the lamp.
The recalled lamps come in various models and shapes, including bunnies, cats, sailboats, and clouds.
About the IKEA Lamp Recall
The expansion of this recall includes over 30.2 million lamps, including roughly 3.5 million in the United States, and 1.4 million in Canada.
The initial recall was issued after a 15-month-old baby was nearly strangled after becoming entangled in one of the lamps’ cords. Similarly, the death of a 16-month-old baby was reported. Both of these incidents occurred in Europe.
These lamps were sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide from May 1984-April 2014, as well as in IKEA’s catalog and online store. The price varied from $5 to $30.
