Ashley Furniture Amnon Floor Lamps Present Burn Hazard to Consumers
Despite what the label says, Use of a lightbulb greater than 25 watts can melt the lamp's power switch
A new recall from Ashley Furniture affects about 1,000 Amnon floor lamps.
An incorrect label on the recalled lamps states that consumers can use 40-watt lightbulbs in the product. However, the socket is only designed to support 25-watt lightbulbs. Use of a lightbulb greater than 25 watts can melt the lamp's power switch, posing a burn hazard to consumers.
This recall involves Signature Design by Ashley Amnon floor lamps with a floor switch and 12 lightbulb sockets. The portable, electric floor lamps are metal with a bronze finish and measure about 64 inches tall. Model number L207971 is printed on a label on the underside of the lamp's base.
Where and when were they sold?
The affected lamps were sold at Ashley Furniture Home stores, independently owned and operated furniture stores nationwide, as well as online through Amazon, Ashley Furniture, Walmart, Wayfair, and other online retailers from February 2017 through April 2018.
Ashley Furniture says that, to date, it has received seven incident reports related to this recall, including six reports of the floor lamp's power switch melting with four of those reports resulting in minor property damage. No injuries have been reported.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should immediately stop using and unplug the recalled Amnon floor lamps and contact Ashley Furniture for instructions on how to receive a full refund. Ashley Furniture is contacting all known purchasers directly.
