IKEA nightlights recalled over one report of electric shock

Posted on August 18, 2015 9:27 am under Product Liability

IKEA North America Services LLC is recalling about 359,000 of its PATRULL Nightlights after receiving one injury report due to a defective plastic covering that may detach and expose the nightlight’s electrical components, according to a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on Tuesday, August 18.

The recalled nightlights were made available at different IKEA stores nationwide and online between August 2013 and July 2015 in three different colors: pink, orange, and white. IKEA’s logo can be found on the back top of the product near its sensor. The company learned about an incident in Austria where a young child suffered from electric shock and minor wounds after trying to remove the light with a detached dome-shaped plastic cover from its electrical outlet.

Customers should refrain from using the product and contact the company for a full refund.

Defective lights and bulbs such as this are threats to safety at home.
