CPSC Recalls Various Products Made in Mainland China
The CPSC has announced the following recalls of products made in mainland China.
West Elm, a division of Williams-Sonoma Inc., has recalled about 43,000 table lamps because the electrical wire that runs through the lamps can be cut or fray by the lamp’s adjustable joint, posing a risk of electric shock to consumers. The recalled Industrial Task table lamps have an on/off switch and an adjustable arm that locks at two angles. The head of the lamp has a tension that allows it to swivel to direct light. Some models have a USB port in the base. The lamps were sold in various colours, are about 33 inches tall and measure about seven inches in diameter at the base.
