Massive Recall: Your Himalayan Salt Lamp May Harm You

Himalayan rock salt lamps became very popular since recently. People have various reasons to have one, whether because of the look or because of the health benefits the Himalayan rock salt lamps can have.
However, what matters is the brand. Lately, thousands of Himalayan rock salt lamps were required to be withdrawn from sale.

This especially refers to Himalayan rock salt lamps manufactured by Lumière which have been available at Michaels within the period July – November 2016. This is of your concern if you have ordered Himalayan rock salt lamp for you via Amazon.

Over 80,000 Himalayan rock salt lamps have been withdrawn from sale following an incident when such lamps caused shock or fire.

The problem might be at Carnival of Lights, Lumière Basket of Rocks, and Rock of Gibraltar because they have dimmer switches and other plugs which can often be overheated and ignited. However, this is not what you would like to happen to you, right?

The withdrawn lamps from the sale were made from pink salt blocks.
The clients who have purchased lamps are advised to again check the lamp barcode and if it matches with the series barcode from the withdrawn series of lamps to return the lamps to US Michaels. They will receive the full sum compensation they have paid for the lamp.

“Working together with the CPSC, we have recalled the line of Lumière Himalayan Salt Lamps sold between July 2016 and November 2016,” a Michaels’ spokesman stated.

“The safety and well-being of our customers is our top priority and we have taken immediate steps to remove this product from our stores, inventories, and supply chain. We apologize to anyone who has been affected by this situation and are providing full refunds…”

Do you have one of these?

What you should do is check the barcode and the SKU and UPC numbers of the lamp you have at home. The SKU and UPC numbers of the removed lamps are the following:

•Rock of Gibraltar Lamp – SKU 495144, UPC 00886946056253
•Basket of Rocks – SKU 495146, UPC 00886946056277
•Carnival of Lights – SKU 495433, UPC 00886946058325

Look for the numbers above on your slat lamp and on the package box of the lamp.
If these numbers match with the lamp you have at home, unplug the lamp now! Next, go to Michaels’ store immediately and get your money back.

Initially, these lamps were designed to clean the air into your home and to provide ambient light into your room.
The scientific evidence says that Himalayan pink salt lamps can increase the number of the negative ions within the room they are plugged in.

What makes these lamps so powerful?
•Build up negative ions, and soak up moisture;
•Bind positive ions to their matching negative ions
•Reduce irritants and allergens
•Attract humidity, and their surface is moist;
•Provide soothing effect
•Neutralize the “electro-smog”;

The three main action principles related to the function of the Himalayan salt lamps are as follows:

The salt, when heated absorbs the water or the moist into your home. Then this moist evaporates. This way, the ions are released. After the salt gets into contact with the water molecules turns into a solution.
Positively charged ions of the sodium and negatively charged ions of the chloride then become neutral. When neutral they are released into your environment. This helps the reduction of the pollutants found in the air of your home, and these can be allergens and irritants.

2.Electromagnetic oscillation
You have probably asked yourself what does Schuman resonance frequency means. It means that every single form on the Earth is detached to an electromagnetic field of vibration. Industrialization and electronics expose us to artificial electromagnetic wavelengths and to some other frequency values.
Therefore, Himalayan salt lamps with their neutral atomic structure when heated regulate these artificial frequencies and this way they neutralize the ‘electro-smog’.

3. Transparent-crystalline structure develops the light waves
Rainbow spectrum light waves (300-700 nanometers) are significant for your health. New energy is absorbed by our body through electromagnetic wavelengths. The salt rock wavelengths range within the upper nanometer zone (600-700 nanometers) and therefore they release positive and calming waves.
People simply love the Himalayan salt lamps because of their appearance and these lamps for sure will make your home looks pretty and with a pleasant atmosphere.
