There are also reports of another incident that almost proved fatal for a 15 month-old toddler. The furniture retailer advises its customers to make sure that both the lamp and lamp cable are firmly attached to the wall.
They are also offering a safety kit free-of-charge. The safety kit contains a warning label, safety instructions and self-adhesive clips to fix the lamp cable to the wall.
IKEA’s website advises customers that have bought Smila lamps to carefully check whether the lamp is firmly attached to the wall.
“Both the lamp and the cables should be mounted out of reach of children”, IKEA writes.
