Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC), and IKEA have jointly recalled the PATRULL nightlights with sensors in the following models (the article number is printed on the packaging):
Model Name - Article Number
The plastic covering on the nightlight may detach, exposing electrical elements and posing a shock hazard.
While Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents relating to the nightlights, one young child in Austria who removed the light from the socket received an electric shock. The child suffered minor wounds on the hand.
Customers are advised to unplug and stop using the nightlight immediately and return it to an IKEA store for a full refund.
For further information, customers may contact IKEA Canada at 1-800-661-9807 or visit the company's website.
From August 2013 to July 2015, approximately 83,000 of the lights were sold in Canada, and approximately 359,000 in the U.S.
