The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday a voluntary recall of 33,000 LED Clip-On Desk Lamps sold at Lowe’s stores.
It said the manufacturer is He Shan Lide of China and that he power cord for the lamp can detach where it meets the clamp, exposing energized wires, posing an electric shock risk.
There have been five reports of cords detaching, including one reported electric shock and one report of a child receiving burns on her hand and leg.
The recall conducted by He Shan Lide involves pink and blue plastic LED desk lamps with a flexible metal neck approximately 12 inches long and a clamp at the base.
They were sold exclusively at Lowe’s stores from May 2011 to December 2011 for about $20.
Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the lamp, unplug the power cord, cut the power cord off 2 or 3 inches above the plug, discard the lamp and send the plug to He Shan Lide, 4570 Eucalyptus Ave, Suite C, Chino, CA 91710 along with their name and address to receive a full refund, including the cost of postage for returning the plug.
