Defective Sockets May Cause Floor Lamps to Short Circuit

The lamps are being recalled for posing fire and shock hazards

July 14, 2016

Home Source has issued a recall of 2,700 of its floor lamps due to an issue with their sockets.

The lamps can short circuit due to defective sockets, posing fire and shock hazards.

This recall involves brown metal floor lamps with alabaster glass shades. They are illuminated with a single 100-watt light bulb and measure about 70 to 72 inches tall. Model numbers LMP4229, LMP4168, and LMP10771 can be found on the label at the bottom of the lamps.

The lamps were sold at small retail stores located in the New York metropolitan area and online from February 2016 to April 2016 for about $60.

Home Source has received three reports of the lamp's sockets burning and smoking. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled floor lamps and contact Home Source for information on returning the lamps for a full refund.

Consumers with questions can call the company at (888) 660-5549.
