IKEA recalls children's wall lamps

IKEA has recalled eight of its children's wall-mounted lamps after one toddler died and another was injured, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

In each case, the lamp cord was pulled into the crib by the infant, creating the strangulation hazard. Both incidents took place in Europe.

There are eight different models involved in the recall: a blue star, a yellow moon, a pink flower, a white flower, a red heart, green bug, a blue seashell and an orange seahorse.

    People, people, people. when are we going to stop the madness and place the blame squarely where it belongs? These errant little rascals are obviously to blame and should be recalled immediately!
