On December 11, 2013, Ikea recalled its wall-mounted lamps because the cords can be pulled into cribs creating a strangulation hazard. Tragically, a 16-month old child has died as result of strangulation from the cord and a 15-month old child was nearly strangled by the cord.
The lamps are designed for children and feature eight designs including a yellow moon, white flower, blue star, red heart, pink flower, green bug, orange seahorse and blue seashell. Nearly 3 million of the lamps were sold in the United States.
