    Ikea recalls ceiling lamps after falling incidents

    FURNITURE giant Ikea is recalling three of its ceiling lamps that have had their glass shades fall off.

    The incidents were reported by customers globally but no reports of injuries have been reported in Singapore.

    In a statement yesterday, the company urged customers who have bought the Hyby, Lock and Rinna ceiling lamps to take them back to any Ikea store, where they will receive a full refund.

    Only the Hyby and Lock lamps are sold in Singapore.

    "In a few cases, medical treatment was required and one customer reportedly needed stitches," a spokesman said.

    "All our products are tested to and comply with applicable testing standards and legislation. In spite of this, we have received reports that Lock and Hyby ceiling lamps have fallen," the spokesman added.

    The statement said a receipt proving purchase is not needed for a full refund.
