The company issued a statement urging customers who own one of their Smila mounted wall lights to check immediately that the lamp and cord are out of reach of children in cot or playpens.
Consumers should also make sure the cord of the lamp is securely fastened to the wall, because loose lamp cords can pose a strangulation hazard to infants and young children, the statement said.
Though there have been no reports of injuries relating to the lamps in Thailand, the company is offering customers a free repair kit containing self-adhesive fasteners to fix the lamp cord to the wall.
Ikea also reiterated the fact that products with cords such as curtains and blinds can also pose a strangulation hazard. Accessible cords should always be kept out of reach of young children, the company's statement said.
