According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, thousands of Himalayan rock salt lamps are being recalled. Specifically, three different lamps from the brand Lumière, that were sold between July and November 2016 at Michaels, and also on Amazon.
Michaels recalled about 80,000 pink Himalayan salt lamps after it was discovered they could shock or catch fire.
The Lumiere Basket of Rocks, Carnival of Lights and Rock of Gibraltar lamps have dimmer switches and/or outlet plugs which could overheat and ignite.
