West Elm Floor Lamp Recall Issued Due to Risk of Injury, Shocks

Hundreds of floor lamps sold at West Elm stores nationwide have been recalled from the market after at least 24 reports of the lamps failing, including three reports of the cords sparking.  

A West Elm Overarching floor lamp recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on April 23, due to problems with the lamp’s joint locking mechanism, which may fail and allow the lamp to collapse. This may create sparks from the cord and pose a potential risk of shocks or other injury for consumers.

To date, 24 incident reports have been received by the manufacturer, including at least ten incidents where the West Elm floor lamp lamp fell and three incidents where the cords sparked. No injuries have been reported.
