Product Recall: Ikea nightlight might electrocute your baby

18 August 2015

If you have one of IKEA's Patrull Nightlights, you need to know about a product recall on it.

The following notice has been issued by the retailer: "IKEA urges customers who have a PATRULL nightlight to immediately stop using it and to bring it back to an IKEA store for a full refund."

Here's what they look like.


You'll notice that the image has an EU plug, but IKEA say that "the construction and risk is the same regardless of PATRULL nightlight plug type."

IKEA have been alerted to a report where a child played with the PATRULL nightlight, and when removing the light from the socket, the lid came off and the child got an electric shock and had visible wounds on their hand.

They say: "Whenever an IKEA product is involved in an incident we take immediate action. The product was removed from sale the same day as the report came in and an investigation started. More than 600 PATRULL nightlights have since been tested and they were all OK. In spite of this IKEA has decided to recall the lamp to avoid the risk of any further incidents."

"Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required for a full refund. For more information, please contact Customer Services on 0203 645 0010. IKEA apologises for any inconvenience this may cause."
