WASHINGTON, DC (5/23/12) – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer products. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
About 33,000 of the LED Clip-On Desk Lamps, imported by LG Sourcing INC of North Wilkesboro, NC, and manufactured by He Shan Lide of China, are being recalled.
The power cord for the lamp can detach where it meets the clamp, exposing energized wires, posing an electric shock risk to consumers.
The firm has received five reports of cords detaching, including one reported electric shock and one report of a child receiving burns to her hand and leg.
This recall, conducted by He Shan Lide, involves pink and blue plastic LED desk lamps with a flexible metal neck approximately 12" long and a clamp at the base. The power cord has a silver label attached to it. On one side of the label "MET," "Electrical Safety", "E113152" and "Apr. 2011" are printed. The other side of the label includes the model number F3044-AC-01 (pink lamps) or F3044-AC-02 (blue lamps). The plug on the power cord is labeled "KENIC KE 01P E155176."
The lamps were sold exclusively at Lowe's stores nationwide from May 2011 to December 2011 for about $20.
Consumers should immediately stop using the lamp, unplug the power cord, cut the power cord off 2" to 3" 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.
