Immediately stop using the recalled wall lamps and return them to an IKEA store for a product exchange or refund.
This recall involves IKEA children’s wall-mounted lamps sold in various style names, shapes and colours. The lamps have a cord, about 2.1 to 2.4 meters (7 to 8 feet) long with either a switch on the cord or a switch located on the lamp.
The following lamp styles are included in the recall reannouncement and expansion:

Children can get entangled in the electrical cord that hangs from the children's wall-mounted lamps, posing a strangulation hazard.
A 15-month-old baby became entangled in the TASSA NATT lamp's cord and nearly strangled. This incident, and the death of a 16-month-old baby who died after getting entangled in the SMILA lamp's cord, were reported in the previous recall. In both incidents, which occurred in Europe, the lamp cord was pulled into the crib by the infants.
Health Canada has not received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these lamps.
