IKEA has announced a recall for potentially dangerous lamp.

The home furnishings giant is recalling its Gothem floor and table lamps. Cables damaged during manufacturing can come in contact with the metal body of the lamp, posing a shock hazard to consumers. The company believes that about 30,000 units are affected.

Worldwide, three reports of minor shock have been received.

The recalled lamps are brush-finished nickel plated and have a dimmer switch. The floor lamp is 49 inches tall, and the table lamps are 14 or 18 inches tall. Gothem and the IKEA logo are printed on the label attached to the underside of each lamp base.

These items could be purchased at IKEA stores on the IKEA website from October 2015 through February 2016 for between $20 and $50.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled floor and table lamps and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund.

Customers with questions about this recall can contact IKEA at (888) 966-4532.
