What is the problem?
The wiring for the lamp's light sockets can become exposed, posing a risk of electric shock to consumers. In addition, use of the recommended standard 40 watt light bulbs can generate excessive heat, which can melt the double plastic shades over the bulbs.
How can I tell if I own this product?
This recall involves Classic Quarters Five Light Floor Lamps. The lamps stand about five feet tall and have a gunmetal or chrome colored metal pole and five adjustable lights mounted on flexible metal tubes at the top.

These lamps can be further identified by SKU numbers 612007239, 612007829 or 612008982 at the beginning of the instructions.
Lamps that use candelabra bulbs are not subject to this recall and can be identified by labels marked with the model number G-1844-5B and SKU numbers 612009036 or 612009037 in the instructions.
