Desk lamps sold at U.S. Office Depot recalled for shock hazard

About 6,800 desk lamps are being recalled because they pose a shock hazard to users, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced.

Manufactured by Environmental Lighting Concepts Inc., the Taylor Desk Lamps were sold at Office Depot stores across the U.S. from May to October 2006.

The electrical cord on the lamp can become improperly aligned when being assembled, posing a shock hazard. The company has received four reports of consumers suffering minor electrical shocks.

Consumers should stop using the lamp immediately and contact Environmental Lighting Concepts for a refund.
