|Danger||Measures adopted by
light, table lamp
Product name: 'Touch Lamp' (switched on and off or dimmed by touch).
|Risk of electrocution. Due to the lamp's design, when the bulb is changed the base is live and can be touched. The built-in electronics did not pass the voltage test. A spliced wire at the terminal connection renders the leakage paths and air gaps ineffective.||Prohibition order against the importer. Ban on placing on the market with immediate effect.|
