Williams-Sonoma Recalling Rejuvenation Wall Sconces Due to Shock Hazard
The articulating arm's joint may pinch or cut the electrical wire and cause it to fray
Williams-Sonoma has issued a recall for 1,055 wall sconces due to a shock hazard.
The articulating arm's joint may pinch or cut the electrical wire and cause it to fray, posing a risk of electric shock.
The affected items include the Rejuvenation Cypress and Imbrie articulated wall sconces, which have articulating jointed arms as well as adjustable shades in several colors and finishes. They were sold in both plug-in (also known as pin-up) and hard-wired versions. The sconce arms are roughly 16 inches long, and there is a label inside the canopy of each sconce containing the SKU number, configuration ID, manufacturing date, and production order number.
The following SKU numbers are included in this recall:
The recalled items were sold at Rejuvenation stores across the U.S. from September 2016 until March 2017. They sold for between $250 and $400.
Although no injuries have been reported to date, the company has received four reports of sconce wires becoming pinched or frayed. For this reason, consumers are urged to stop using the sconces immediately and to contact the company for instructions on how to get a free repair or a replacement sconce, which will include shipping and charges for the inspection, removal, and replacement of the lamps by a licensed electrician. Rejuvenation is directly contacting all consumers known to have bought an affected sconce.
