IKEA Recalls 30,000 Lamps for Shock Hazard

Three reports of minor shock have been received worldwide. Consumers are asked to immediately stop using the recalled lamps and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund.

IKEA is recalling about 30,600 Gothem floor and table lamps because they pose a shock hazard: Cables damaged during manufacturing can come in contact with the metal body of the lamp, posing a shock hazard to consumers, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's notice.

Consumers who own the lamps can call IKEA toll-free at 888-966-4532 any time or visit www.ikea-usa.com and click on Press Room at the bottom of the page, then Product Recalls at the top of the page, for more information.

The notice states that the lamps 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 bottom of the lamp base.

Three reports of minor shock have been received worldwide. Consumers are asked to immediately stop using the recalled lamps and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund. They were sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide and online from October 2015 through February 2016 for between $20 and $50.
