Massive Recall: Your Himalayan Salt Lamp May Kill You
Major retailer Michaels has been forced to issue a recall for thousands of faulty and potentially unsafe Himalayan salt lamps.
USA Today reports 80,000 lamps have been recalled, and notes the US Consumer Product Safety Commision blames a faulty dimmer switch on the lamps, which "can overheat and ignite, posing shock and fire hazards."
According to KTVB, this recall affects the Rock of Gibraltar Lamp, Carnival of Lights, and Basket of Rocks – all sold at Michaels through a distributor named SporTex US or on Amazon. The lamps have a production date of between July and November 2016.
If you own such a lamp, the product safety commission instructs you to stop using it “immediately” and return it to any Michaels for a refund.
No injuries have been reported as of yet.
