(WBNG Binghamton) When you buy a clip on desk lamp, you're probably hoping it serves as a convenience. One California company, however, He Shan Lide, is asking you to turn off its lights.
The company is recalling about 33,000 of its desk lamps sold at Lowes.
Its because the power cord for the lamp can come loose, exposing the energized wires and causing an electric shock risk to consumers.
Already, the company's gotten about 5 reports of cords detaching, one report of electric shock, and one report of a child receiving burns to her hand and leg.
The lamps come in blue or pink, with model numbers F3044-AC-01 and F30544-AC-02 respectively. They were sold in U.S. Lowes from May 2011 to December 2011.
If you have the lamp, unplug it and cut the power cord off 2 to 3 inches above the plug.
Then, throw out the lamp and send the plug back to the He Shan Lide for a full refund.
Adress it to He Shan Lide, 4570 Eucalyptus Ave, Suite C, Chino, CA 91710. Include your name and address, so the company can send you a full refund, as well as a refund for your postage.
You may also call the company at (800) 584-1664 or visit its website for more information: www.diogenlighting.com .
You'll also receive the cost of postage for returning the plug.
If you need more information, call He Shan Lide at 800-584-1664 or go to its website diogenlighting.com.
