IKEA Reannounces and Expands Recall of Childrens Wall-Mounted Lamps Due to Strangulation Hazard

Manufacturer: IKEA North America Services LLC
Product: Children's wall-mounted lamps
Hazard: Children can get entangled in the electrical cord that hangs from the children’s wall-mounted lamps, posing a strangulation hazard.
Injuries: A 15-month-old baby became entangled in the TASSA NATT lamp’s cord and nearly strangled. This incident, and the death of a 16-month-old baby who died after getting entangled in the SMILA lamp’s cord, were reported in the previous recall. In both incidents, which occurred in Europe, the lamp cord was pulled into the crib by the infants.
Description: This recall involves IKEA children’s wall-mounted lamps sold in various style names, shapes and colors. The lamps have a cord, about 7 to 8 feet long with either a switch on the cord or a switch located on the lamp. The following lamp styles are included in the recall re-announcement and expansion.
