CDX Group issued a recall of about 1,600 desk and table lamps. The problem was discovered after a fire hazard led to a finding of substandard electrical wiring, connections and plugs in these lamps.
I wonder how many people who own these lamps are going to get notice of this recall. The products at issue were sold in Brooklyn, New York and Lexington, Kentucky from April 2010 through July 2010 for between $5 and $10. Are folks who bought a $10 lamp focused on checking product recalls? I’ve bought my share of $10 lamps and I can’t tell you when and where I bought them. I would be curious as to how many of the estimated 1,600 know of this recall.
