IKEA Recalls LED PATRULL Nightlight Over Shock Risks

Note; Example shown has an EU plug but the construction and risk is the same regardless of PATRULL nightlight plug type.

IKEA urges customers who have a PATRULL nightlight to immediately stop using it and to bring it back to any IKEA store for a full refund. Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required to receive a full refund.

IKEA has received one report in Austria where a young child tried to remove the light from the electrical outlet when the colored plastic dome cover detached exposing the electrical components. The child received an electric shock and minor wounds on the hand. No incidents have been reported in the US. 

This recall affects all PATRULL Nightlights. Nightlights come in white, orange and pink. The nightlights automatically turn on in the dark and off in the light. Each PATRULL Nightlight has an IKEA logo on the back top near the sensor. The light has a dome-shaped plastic cover that gives the light its color and is attached to a white rectangular plastic base. The nightlight is 2 ¾ inches round and 3 ½ inches deep.

PATRULL nightlight has been sold in Europe and North America since August 2013.

Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required for a full refund. For more information, please contact IKEA toll-free at (888) 966-4532. 

IKEA apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.

About 118,900 lights were sold in the North America market (359,000 in U.S.and 83,000 in Canada), according to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
