Over 25,000 Threshold Lamps Recalled By Target Over Shock Risk

Posted on September 3, 2013

A series of white floor lamps from the Threshold collection are being recalled by the Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Target Corporation due to a potential shock and fire threat.  The more than 25,000 lamps in question were sold at Target stores across the country and in Canada between September of last year and this past May.  The lamps have a three-way socket, but this can pose a threat if a person instead places a one-way bulb into the product.  A short can occur when tightening of such an incorrect bulb takes place, and that short can either burn or shock the person doing the tightening.  Six incidents involving a fire and/or a shock have come to the notice of the company at this time.  Owners are being asked to unplug the lamps and bring them back to Target to get their money back.
