Himalayan salt lamps which were sold on Amazon, as well as at Michael’s stores, between the months of July and November in 2016 have recently been recalled for safety issues. Customers who have these trendy, healthy lifestyle lamps can return them for a full refund at Michael’s, provided they’re the correct product name and number.

The lamps have become a hot commodity over the last couple of years due to their health claims ranging from being mood-boosters to decreasing allergens. Michael’s is honoring refunds due to the massive recall for select products (three of them). Should you have such a product in your home, check the label and return the item. The product recall has been issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, resulting from the dimmer or switch overheating with the possibility of catching fire.
