The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall includes white plastic, turned-spindle design Floor Lamps with white fabric drum lamp shades and two 3-way pull-chain switches. The recalled Floor Lamp is illuminated by two 3-way 100-watt or 29-watt CFL bulbs and stands approximately 60 inches tall. The model number of “PL1071” is printed on a sticker on the bottom of the Lamp.

According to the CPSC, the Floor Lamp can short when a standard one-way bulb is fully tightened in the lamp’s three-way socket, posing a fire and shock hazard to consumers.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).
