An IKEA children's wall-mounted lamp that's being recalled because children can get entangled in the electrical cord.

Details on product recalls or notices are at and other websites or numbers listed.

About 30.2 million IKEA children's wall-mounted lamps sold in various style names from May 1984 to April 2014. The lamps have a cord, about 7 to 8 feet long, with either a switch on the cord or on the lamp. Several lamp styles are included in the recall. Children can get entangled in the electrical cord that hangs from the wall-mounted lamps, posing a strangulation hazard.

A 15-month-old baby became entangled in one lamp's cord and nearly strangled. This and the death of a 16-month-old baby who died after getting entangled in the cord, were reported in a previous recall. In both cases, which occurred in Europe, the cord was pulled into the crib by the infants.

This recall includes IKEA children's lamps in a previous recall in December 2013 and expands the types of lamps.
