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.

About 1.4 million in Canada, 3.5 million in the United States and 30.2 million worldwide. This re-announcement includes IKEA children's lamps in the firm's previous recall in December 2013 and expands the number and types of lamps.

The recalled lamps were sold from May 1984 to April 2014 at IKEA stores nationwide, in IKEA's catalogue and on the IKEA Canada website.

The affected lamps were manufactured in the United States, Lithuania and China by IKEA of Sweden, Almhult, Sweden and distributed through IKEA Canada, Burlington, Ontario.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lamps, remove them from the wall and contact IKEA for a free repair kit. Do not use the lamp until the repair kit is installed. The repair kit has self-adhesive fasteners for attaching the lamp's cord to the wall as well as safety instructions.
