Legally Pink Law, we take safety seriously and we’re invested in protecting your
family. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
reports that after one child died and another was nearly strangled, IKEA is recalling
these lights and providing fasteners so that the lamp’s cord remains
in place on the wall.
The children affected by the lamp cords were aged 16 months and 15 months.
Both were able to pull the lamp’s cord into the crib. One of the
children died, and the other survived after near strangulation.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends taking down the
lamps until you install the free repair kit from IKEA. Here’s IKEA’s

All cords should be kept at a distance from babies, and especially from
the crib. A safe distance is a minimum of three feet. If you or someone
