According to a series of news reports, IKEA has launched a recall campaign release with the help of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission that states that several of its floor and table lamps are being recalled. The campaign was launched after incidents were reported.
The official recall report shows that Gothem floor and table lamps may come with cables that may have been damaged during the manufacturing process. If that’s the case and the cables come in contact with the metal body of the lamp, there’s a possibility that consumers may be exposed to shock risks.
The thousands of recalled products come with “Gothem” and the IKEA logo both printed on the label that is attached to the underside of each lamp base.
Since these lamps have been tied to at least three incidents tied to minor shocks, the recall campaign was deemed necessary. While the shocks were minor and no major injuries were reported, consumers are being urged to avoid making the mistake of ignoring the risks.
If you have the recalled products in your possession, stop using the lamps and contact IKEA in order to learn more about how you should proceed to have the issue addressed.
The recalled lamps were sold at IKEA stores nationwide and online between October 2015 and February 2016. Consumers who have the recalled lamps are urged to return them to the place of purchase or another IKEA store for a full refund.
