IKEA recalls PATRULL nightlight for
risk of injury
While there are no reports of injury in Canada, IKEA urges customers who have a PATRULL nightlight to immediately stop using the night light and bring it back to any IKEA store where they will receive a full refund.
At IKEA, the safety and security of everyone who comes into contact with our product is of the utmost importance. IKEA has received one report from Austria where a child was playing with the light and tried to remove it from the socket when he got an electric shock and sustained visible wound on his hand.
Whenever an IKEA product is involved in an incident we take immediate action. The product was immediately sales stopped. IKEA tested samples of more than 600 PATRULL nightlights and they all passed testing, however IKEA has decided to recall the lamp to avoid the risk of any further incidents.
PATRULL nightlight has been sold in Europe and North America since 2013.
Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required for a full refund. For more information, please contact IKEA toll-free 1-800-661-9807.
IKEA apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
