Child safety with IKEA SMILA wall mounted lamps

IKEA urges all customers that have an IKEA SMILA wall mounted lamp or any other corded wall mounted lamp to check immediately that the lamp and cord are out of arm’s reach of their child when placed in a cot or playpen and that the cord is securely fastened to the wall.

Lamp cords can present a strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers if placed too close to a cot or playpen. The lamp and its cord should be at least one meter/three feet away from any part of a crib, cot, playpen or other safe sleep environment.

IKEA reminds customers that any corded product such as a window covering or blind can present a strangulation hazard. Accessible cords should always be kept out of reach of young children.

IKEA apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
