Ikea is urging customers who have a Patrull nightlight to immediately stop using it and to bring it back to any Ikea store for a full refund.
Ikea says it has received one report in Austria where a young child tried to remove the light from the electrical outlet when the colored plastic dome cover detached, exposing the electrical components. They say the child received an electric shock and minor wounds on the hand. No incidents have been reported in the U.S., according to the company.
This recall affects all Patrull nightlights. Nightlights come in white, orange and pink. The nightlights automatically turn on in the dark and off in the light. Each Patrull nightlight has an IKEA logo on the back top near the sensor. The light has a dome-shaped plastic cover that gives the light its color and is attached to a white rectangular plastic base. The nightlight is 2 ¾ inches round and 3 ½ inches deep.
Patrull nightlights have been sold in Europe and North America since August 2013.
