Recall news
Product recall: floor lamps
By The Associated Press

The following recall has been announced:



DETAILS: Classic Quarters Five Light Floor Lamps imported by Big Lots of Columbus, Ohio; sold exclusively at Big Lots stores nationwide from April 2010 through November 2011. The lamps stand about five feet tall and have a gunmetal- or chrome-colored metal pole and five adjustable lights mounted on flexible metal tubes at the top. Dark plastic or multi-colored double plastic shades cover each of the five lights. The lamps were manufactured in China.

WHY: The wiring for the lamp's light sockets can become exposed, posing a risk of electric shock. Use of the recommended standard 40 watt light bulbs can generate excessive heat, which can melt the double plastic shades over the bulbs.

INCIDENTS: The firm has received four reports of melting lamp shades. No injuries have been reported.

HOW MANY: About 43,700.

FOR MORE: Contact Big Lots at 866-244-5687 Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST, or visit the firm's website at .
