The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the expanded recall includes 3.5 million units in the United States.
The hazard lies with the electrical cord that hangs from the lamps, on which children can get entangled, posing a risk of strangulation.
According to the CPSC, a 16-month-old child died after getting entangled in the SMILA lamp's cord, and a 15-month-old was nearly strangled after becoming caught on the TASSA NATT lamp's cord. Both incident occurred in Europe and were reported in a previous recall.
Consumers are advised to stop using the product immediately, remove the recalled lamps from the wall, and contact IKEA for a free repair kit.
The repair kit includes self-adhesive fasteners for attaching the lamp's cord to the wall, as well as safety instructions.
To get the repair kit call IKEA's toll-free consumer contact number at (888) 966-4532, or visit www.ikea-usa.com and click on the Recall link at the top of the page.
