American Signature has issued a recall affecting certain 26-inch table lamps. Improper wiring can pose shock and fire hazards to consumers.

The recalled table lamps have a 16-inch tall, rectangular shade and a square dark wood and mirror base with a mirrored circle pattern on the front. A silver on/off dial is on the lower front of the lamp's base. A label on the underside of the lamp base has 'NOVA, Item Number 1010154 and UL E312412' printed on it. The description on the customer sales invoice reads, '26" TBL LAMP-MIRROR CIRCLE.'

The table lamps included in this recall were sold at Value City Furniture and American Signature Furniture stores nationwide from February 2013 to March 2014.

Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the recalled lamps and return the lamp to the nearest Value City Furniture or American Signature Furniture store for a full refund or store credit equal to their purchase price. American Signature is contacting all known consumers directly.
