[National]  IKEA urges all customers that have an IKEA SMILA wall mounted lamp to check immediately that the lamp and cord are out of reach of children when in a cot or playpen. Ensure that the cord is securely fastened to the wall as loose lamp cords can present a strangulation hazard to infants and children.
IKEA urges all customers that have an IKEA SMILA wall mounted lamp to check immediately that the lamp and cord are out of reach of children when in a cot or playpen. Ensure that the cord is securely fastened to the wall as loose lamp cords can present a strangulation hazard to infants and young children.

IKEA has received a report of a tragic accident in Scotland, where an infant in a cot died after getting entangled with the cord of a SMILA wall mounted lamp. No reports of injury have been received in Singapore.

Customers are asked to proceed to the Exchange and Returns Counters at either
IKEA Tampines or IKEA Alexandra or contact IKEA Customer Service at
+65 6786 6868
to receive a repair kit free of charge containing a warning label, safety instructions and self-adhesive fasteners for fixing the lamp cord to the wall.

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 apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
