It might not be a great idea to have these in your house after all.
Himalayan rock salt lamps have become trendy in the past couple years because they have tons of health claims, from deodorizing the air and decreasing allergens to boosting your mood. If you have one in your house, you’re going to want to check the label, because thousands are being recalled because the dimmer or switch can overheat and catch fire, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
There are three different styles of rock salt lamps being recalled, and they’re all sold under the brand, Lumière. The lamps were either one hunk of salt mounted on a wooden base or a basket of smaller rocks. Here are the product names and numbers:
Rock of Gibraltar Lamp, SKU 495144, UPC 00886946056253
Carnival of Lights, SKU 495433, UPC 00886946058325
Basket of Rocks, SKU 495146, UPC 00886946056277
The lamps were sold at Michaels stores between July and November 2016, but also online on Amazon. Stop using your lamp immediately if it’s on this list, and you can return it at Michaels to get a full refund.
