IKEA recalls track lighting systems

Retailer IKEA is recalling about 5000 track lighting systems manufactured in China and sold in the United States, part of a worldwide recall of nearly 100,000 units.

According to IKEA, the ground connector in the lighting track is defective, and poses an electrical shock hazard to consumers. The company has not received any reports of incidents or injuries associated with the recall track lighting system, but has initiated the recall to reduce the risk of future incidents and injuries.

The recalled track lighting systems were sold in IKEA stores nationwide from September 2011 through March 2012 for between $12 and $20.
