Premises LiabilityRetail chain recalls floor lamp after fire and shock reports

September 18, 2013by Aaron Allison

Homemakers pay good money for household products and appliances, fully expecting that they will work well for a reasonable length of time-and will not pose a threat. Sometimes, however, products not only fail but even cause harm to users.

One of the nation’s leading retailers is recalling such a product: a white 2-bulb floor lamp, sold at its store locations and online from September 2012 to May 2013, whose product number is PL1071. The lamp, which was found to be defective, can cause property damage and injuries. The Consumer Product Safety Commission released the recall after the retailer reported that the product had caused six short circuits, resulting in fire, property damage and electrocution.
