San Francisco, CA—Pottery Barn lamps were voluntarily recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Pottery Barn on November 12, 2010. The CPSC recalled the lamps over a shock hazard they pose.

The recall was initiated after discovering that the electrical wire that runs through the lamps can be pinched or severed at the lamp’s adjustable joint, which can pose a risk of electrical shock to consumers.

The CPSC reported, “This recall involves Pottery Barn’s Clay Task Lamp (Model #2467553), the Montgomery Task Lamp (Model #9691783) and the Montgomery Floor Lamp (Model #9691775). All of the lamps have bronze-colored finishes. ‘Pottery Barn’ and the model number are printed on the bottom of the lamp.”

The recalled lamps were sold in Pottery Barn stores across the U.S., in Pottery Barn’s catalog and through their website, www.potterybarn.com. The lamps sold for between $60 and $300.

Consumers are advised to stop using the lamps and unplug them. To receive instructions on how to return the lamp for a full refund, consumers can contact Pottery Barn.

For more information consumers can contact Pottery Barn toll-free at (877) 851-7890 between 4 a.m. and 9 p.m. PT seven days a week, or visit their website at www.potterybarn.com.
