IKEA recalls LED nightlight after electric shock incident
The product recall follows IKEA receiving one report where a child played with the PATRULL nightlight. The child tried to remove the light from the socket when the lid came off. The child received an electric shock and had visible wounds on his hand.
IKEA has removed the product from sale on the same day as the report came in and an investigation started.
The global retailer said that more than 600 PATRULL nightlights have since been tested and they were all OK but in spite of this IKEA has decided to recall the lamp to avoid the risk of any further incidents.
PATRULL nightlight has been sold in Europe and North America since 2013.
This month IKEA announced that by September 2015 the home furnishing retailer will have transitioned to a 100 per cent LED bulb range to become the first major global retailer to offer a fully LED lighting range.
