[THE INVESTOR] Global furniture giant IKEA said on Sept. 27 it has voluntarily begun recalling ceiling lamps due to safety issues following reports of glass shades falling.
The decision affects 432 Calypso ceiling lamps sold in Korea after Aug. 1, 2016, the company’s local unit said.
About 100 cases of glass shades falling have been filed globally, including three cases of injuries. The company did not disclose details on the countries where the reports were filed.
No similar incidents have been reported in Korea so far, it said.
Customers can get a full refund or replacement with a new product for the lamps manufactured between June 2016 and November 2017, which includes date stamps from 1625 to 1744 without any proof of purchase, it said.
The company advised owners of the lamps to visit its website at http://www.ikea.kr for more information on the recall.
