Product: Oil lamp - Glow/Thomas Sandell 2008

Brand: Iittala Glow

Name:

Type/number of model: 64-2850-112048-7

Batch number/Barcode:

OECD Portal Category:

Description: Oil lamp consisting of two separate parts, which are similar in shape. The metallic lower part is the oil container. Upper part (wick-guard) is made of glass.

Country of origin: China

Chemical,
Fire

The product poses:

- a chemical risk, because the wick-guard is totally loose and the filler cap on the oil container is not childproof. The filler opening does not require two independent movements in order to be opened, i.e. there is no bayonet joint. Therefore, the wick is easily accessible to children. Small children can put the wick in their mouths and ingest lamp oil which may prove to be fatal (lung damage);

- a risk of fire, because there is a risk of oil leakage due to a hole in the filler cap.

The product does not comply with the relevant European standard EN 14059.

Compulsory measures: Import rejected by the customs authorities.
