About 33,000 clip-on desk lamps with LED light bulbs, imported from China and sold exclusively at Lowe's home improvement centers nationwide, are being recalled. The Consumer Product Safety Commission warns that the power cords can detach from the lamps' clamp, exposing the wires and pose dangers of electrocution to

He Shan Lide, the company that manufactures the LED lamps, has received five reports of cords detaching from its lamps--including an incident where a child received burns from the exposed wires.

The recall involves two models of He Shan Lide LED clip-on lights: a pink-colored lamp (model number F3044-AC-01) and a blue-colored lamp (F3044-AC-02). Both were sold at Lowe's stores nationwide from May 2011 to December 2011 for about $20.

Consumers are urged to immediately unplug the recalled clip-on lamp from the wall outlets and cut off about two to three inches of the power cord from the power plug. The cut power plug and consumer's name, address and return shipping costs must be mailed to He Shan Lide (4570 Eucalyptus Ave, Suite C, Chino, CA 91710) in order to obtain a full refund.

For more information, can call He Shan Lide toll-free (800-584-1664) or visit the company website: www.diogenlighting.com.
