November 23, 2010 – Floor and desk lamps sold by Pottery Barn are being recalled because of an electrocution risk. The risk is caused by a small wire that runs the length of the lamp. At the lamp’s adjustable point, the wire could become pinched or severed. This could release a mild or strong electrical shock, which could potentially hurt anyone who touches the lamp. The recall includes Pottery Barn’s Clay Task Lamp, the Montgomery Task Lamp and the Montgomery Floor Lamp. All 3 lamps have a conductive bronze-colored finish. The lamps were manufactured in India and sold nationwide in all Pottery Barn chain stores as well as in the company’s catalog and on its website. They were sold between July 2009 and August 2010. About 7,300 lamps are being recalled nationwide. Pottery Barn has received at least one complaint of a woman shocked by her lamp. Consumers are advised to unplug the lamps and can contact Pottery Barn to get a refund: 1-877-851-7890. If you or a loved one has sustained injury from a lamp or other defective product, it is in your best interest to contact a product liability attorney to learn more about your options for filing a product liability claim in order to seek compensation.
