February 9, 2016 – IKEA has issued a recall for its “Hyby” and “Lock” ceiling lamps as they may detach and pose a fall and injury hazard to consumers.
Both lamps are round and white with glass shades. The Hyby is 37 cm in diameter and has article number 102.042.66 while the Lock is 25 cm in diameter and has article number 200.557.51.
Health Canada says it has not received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of these products.
IKEA Canada and IKEA US have each received two reports of the Hyby and one Lock lamp falling or shattering, with no reported injuries.
About 22,261 Hyby and 405,317 Lock lamps have been sold at IKEA stores across Canada and online at www.ikea.ca. Lock lamps were sold in Canada and the United States from November 2002 to January 2016, while the HYBYs were sold from October 2012 to January 2016.
Both lamps were manufactured in China.
The products can be returned to IKEA for a full refund, the stores notes.
