The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using the recalled products immediately and notes that it is illegal to resell or to attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
The recalled Pottery Barn Lamps, which were manufactured in India, were imported by Pottery Barn, of San Francisco, California.
The electrical wire that runs through the lamps can be pinched or severed at the lampâ€™s adjustable joint, posing a risk of electric shock to consumers. To date, Pottery Barn has received one report of a consumer who received an electrical shock when she touched the lamp.
This recall involves Pottery Barnâ€™s Clay Task Lamp (Model #2467553), the Montgomery Task Lamp (Model #9691783), and the Montgomery Floor Lamp (Model #9691775). All of the lamps have bronze-colored finishes. â€œPottery Barnâ€ and the model number are printed on the bottom of the lamp.
The recalled Pottery Barn Lamps were sold at Pottery Barn stores nationwide, in Pottery Barnâ€™s catalog, and on the firmâ€™s website www.potterybarn.com from July 2009 through August 2010 for between $60 and $300.
The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the recalled lamps, unplug them, and contact Pottery Barn for instructions on how to return the lamp for a full refund.
