IKEA Recalls Millions of Unsafe Children's Lamps

child room

A popular IKEA lamp intended to brighten the rooms of millions of children recently lead to the tragic death of one child and another young child's near-death experience. Now, IKEA is recalling millions of the "SMILA" lamps due to the potential strangulation risk posed by the lamp's cord.

How to identify the "SMILA" series wall-mounted children's lamps:

  • Sold at IKEA from 1999 through May 2013
  • Priced between $10-$13
  • Lamps are 11 inches high and 11 inches wide
  • Sold in eight designs—A blue star, yellow moon, pink flower, white flower, red heart, green bug, blue seashell and orange seahorse.
  • Look for the recalled model name (SMILA) printed on a label on the inside back of the lamp near the light bulb.

The recall covers 2.9 million of the lamps sold in the U.S. and 1.1 million lamps sold in Canada. The cord of these lamps does not attach to the wall, thereby creating the potential strangulation hazard. Both the 16-month-old child who lost their life and the 15-month-old who suffered severe injuries were strangled by the lamp's cord after pulling it into their cribs and becoming entangled in it.
