Thousands Of Himalayan Rock Salt Lamps Recalled

by Kiersten Hickman

Himalayan rock salt lamps are extremely trendy for a number of reasons, ranging from how cute they look in just about any room to their alleged (but unconfirmed) health benefits. However, if you have one in your home, you may want to check on the brand. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, thousands of Himalayan rock salt lamps are being recalled — specifically, three different lamps from Lumière, sold between July and November 2016 at Michaels, as well as through Amazon. The report states that, once these lamps are plugged in, they can overheat and potentially catch fire, making them a shock and fire hazard.

"Working together with the CPSC, we have recalled the line of Lumière Himalayan Salt Lamps sold between July 2016 and November 2016," a Michaels spokesperson tells Bustle in a statement. "The safety and well-being of our customers is our top priority and we have taken immediate steps to remove this product from our stores, inventories, and supply chain. We apologize to anyone who have been affected by this situation and are providing full refunds."

So what do you do if you have one? First, make sure your lamp is one of the three being recalled by the CPSC by checking the SKU and UPC numbers. The first is the Rock of Gibraltar Lamp (SKU 495144, UPC 00886946056253), second is the Carnival of Lights (SKU 495433, UPC 00886946058325), and third is the Basket of Rocks (SKU 495146, UPC 00886946056277). You can find these numbers on the product and the box they came in.

Still not sure if this applies to you? Here's what they look like.

Rock Of Gibraltar Lamp (SKU 495144, UPC 00886946056253)

Carnival Of Lights (SKU 495433, UPC 00886946058325)

Basket Of Rocks (SKU 495146, UPC 00886946056277)

End up getting one of these three? First, unplug the item immediately, then simply go to Michael's with your lamp to receive a full refund.
