Living Traditions’ Rooster Lamps have been recalled for shock and fire hazards, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.
About 2,00 Living Traditions’ Rooster Lamps, which were manufactured in China and imported by Designs Direct of Covington, Kentucky have been recalled. The defective lamps, which retailed for about $20, were sold exclusively at Fred’s Inc. stores, nationwide, during October and November 2011.
The lamps’ electrical cord can fray near its base, which poses a fire or shock hazard to consumers. To date, no incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Living Traditions’ 21-inch rooster-themed lamps, which are constructed of brown polyresin and have an off-white shade and a carved 9-inch rooster affixed to its base. A label on the underside of the base reads “Distributed By Fred’s Inc” and “SKU 61589.”
The firm is advising consumers to immediately stop using the recalled Living Traditions’ Rooster Lamps and contact Designs Direct for a refund. Designs Direct can be reached, toll-free, at 1.888.770.7062 between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Central Time (CT), Monday through Friday, or at the firm’s website at www.regcen.com/roosterlamp.
