Massive Recall: Your Himalayan Salt Lamp May Harm You


Himalayan salt lamps are an absolute favorite these days, and we just can’t enough of their design.

Do you own one? If yes, that’s great, but there’s one thing you should be aware of. Some of these lamps just don’t work.  The Consumer Product Safety Commission withdrew thousands of salt lamps.

These lamps were sold at Michaels stores between July and November 2016. The same applies to Amazon orders. Three lamps from the Lumière brand were considered as improperly functioning.

The store recalled 80,000 Himalayan rock salt lamps due to complain of dysfunction. Some of the items were either or caught fire.

The Basket of Rocks, Carnival of Lights and Rock of Gibraltar have attacked dimmer switches and plugs attached. The bad thing is that these parts usually overheat and ignite. That’s something you don’t need in your home.

Each of the lamps was made from pink salt blocks. Customers had to check their Lumière lamps, and see whether the product is part of the recalled series. They all got their money back.

“Working together with the CPSC, we have recalled the line of Lumière Himalayan Salt Lamps sold between July 2016 and November 2016.

The safety and well-being of our customers is our top priority and we have taken immediate steps to remove this product from our stores, inventories, and supply chain.


We apologize to anyone who have been affected by this situation and are providing full refunds,”said Michael’s spokesperson.”

Do you own a Lumière lamp made from Himalayan salt block?

Check your lamp, and look for the following SKU and UPC numbers:

  • Carnival of Lights — SKU 495433, UPC 00886946058325
  • Basket of Rocks — SKU 495146, UPC 00886946056277
  • Rock of Gibraltar Lamp — SKU 495144, UPC 00886946056253

You should notice the numbers on your salt lamp or the box it was packed. If this is your lamp, unplug it at this very moment, and take it back to Michael’s store.

Himalayan salt block lamps purify the air, and release an amazing dim light. Science approves their efficacy to boost the negative ions in the air.

Why are these lamps so good?

Himalayan salt block lamps have an immense power:

  • Attract humidity which is why their surface is moist
  • Release negative ions, and “suck up” the moisture
  • bind positive and negative ions together
  • “Kill” the electro-smog in your home
  • Eliminate allergens and irritants
  • Soothe

The Himalayan salt rock lamps work on three principles:
