Warning: This IKEA nightlight has been recalled

Katie Mythen-Lynch

Parents have been urged to check children’s rooms for an IKEA nightlight that’s been recalled due to concerns over its safety.

The brand’s PATRULL nightlight, which has an orange sensor bulb, has been sold in Europe and North America since 2013. Today parents have been warned to unplug the light and stop using it immediately.


A statement from the company read:

‘IKEA has received one report where a child played with the PATRULL nightlight. He tried to remove the light from the socket when the lid came off. The child got an electric shock and had visible wounds on his hand.’

IKEA has apologised for any inconvenience caused.

If you have a PATRULL nightlight you can return it in-store for a full refund. Proof of purchase is not required. Contact 01 5413302 (ROI) or 0203 6450010 (UK) for more information.
