IKEA has received customer reports of ceiling lamp glass shades falling. In a few cases medical treatment was required and one customer reportedly needed stitches.

IKEA takes product safety very seriously. All our products are tested to and comply with applicable testing standards and legislation. In spite of this we have received reports that LOCK and HYBY ceiling lamps have fallen. In order to safeguard customers and avoid further incidents we are recalling the products for a full refund.

The LOCK and HYBY ceiling lamps have been sold in all IKEA markets, LOCK since 2002 and HYBY since 2012.

LOCK and HYBY ceiling lamps can be returned to any IKEA store for a full refund. Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required for a full refund. For more information, please visit http://www.ikea.com//LOCK_HYBY_RINNA or contact IKEA 0203 645 0010.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
