Popular retail store Michaels has reportedly issued a recall for thousands of Himalayan salt lamps on the basis of a few major concerns.
USA Today puts the number of affected lamps at a whopping 80,000.
The outlet also reports that the US Consumer Product Safety Commission blames the dimmer switch on the laps, which “can overheat and ignite, posing shock and fire hazards.”
According to KTVB, this recall affects the Rock of Gibraltar Lamp, Carnival of Lights and Basket of Rocks – all sold at Michaels through a distributor named SporTex US or on Amazon. The lamps have a production date of between July and November 2016.
If you own such a lamp, the product safety commission instructs you to stop using it “immediately” and return it to any Michaels for a refund.
No injuries have been reported as of yet.
