Danger Measures adopted by
notifying country
01 Germany Electric 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.
