Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves IKEA HYBY and LOCK Ceiling Lamps.

The recalled Ceiling Lamps have domed white frosted glass shades and three (3) plastic clips that attach the shade to steel electrical lamp housings. The HYBY Lamp has a shade that measures approximately 15 inches in diameter and is decorated with four (4) opaque concentric lines. The lamp housing holds two (2) light bulbs.

The LOCK Ceiling Lamp has a shade that measures approximately 10 inches in diameter. The LOCK Lamp housing in this case holds just one (1) light bulb. The type number and the model name of the Lamps are on a label attached to the electrical lamp housing. The HYBY Lamp is IKEA type number “T1011” while the LOCK Lamp is type number “T0201”.

According to the CPSC, the plastic retaining clips that secure the glass shades to the Lamps’ housings can break. If this occurs, it may allow the glass shades to fall, posing a laceration hazard to those underneath the Lamp or nearby.

IKEA has received 224 reports of incidents worldwide of retaining clips breaking and glass shades falling from the recalled Lamps, including 11 reports of injuries. Three (3) incidents with no injuries were reported in the US. Health Canada has not received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of these products.

The HYBY Ceiling Lamps were sold in Canada and the United States from October 2012 to January 2016.

The LOCK Ceiling Lamps were sold in Canada and the United States from November 2002 to January 2016.
