If you have a track lighting system from IKEA, check to see if it’s being recalled.

In conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, IKEA voluntarily recalled select 365 + SÄNDA track lighting systems.

The Swedish retailer said a straight track system used to hold and power light fixtures poses an electric shock hazard. Roughly 5,000 are being recalled in the U.S., with an estimated 97,000 additional units worldwide.

No injuries have been reported. However, the Consumer Product Safety Commission is still seeking incident or injury reports related to the tracks.

You can identify faulty 28-inch and 45-inch track system units by checking to see if the supplier number 21338 and date stamp 1134 through 1208 are printed on a white label attached to the side of the unit.

Anyone who is currently using one of the defective units should disconnect and return it to any IKEA location for a replacement or full refund. The recalled systems were sold by IKEA from September 2011 to March 2012.
