Accidental death and injury leds to recall of IKEA lamps

After one child died and another was injured, IKEA recalled millions of the childrens “Smila” lamps.

The mid-December recall was prompted after the company was notified of the death and injury. Both incidents occurred in Europe and involved the electrical cord causing accidental strangulation.

The “Smila” lamp was sold worldwide from 1999 to 2013. Consumers who have bought the recalled lamps are advised to immediately stop using it or contact IKEA for a free kit to mount the cord to the wall.
