How did this happen?
When we launched the products we relied on testing and certification provided by an internationally recognised laboratory. Following a report of a fraying cable we retested the item with a different UK-based laboratory who confirmed the defect.
What is the cause of this specific issue?
The spherical pivot joint used for repositioning the lamp can, over time, damage the electrical cable inside it. Through use the cable can become damaged and this can lead to the body of the lamp becoming electrically live creating the potential for electric shock.
What action is Loaf taking to ensure this doesn't happen with future products?
In addition to initial testing completed in the country of origin, we will also have lights tested by an independent laboratory in the UK. We will also carry out spot checks above and beyond recognised industry norms.
How do I return the lamp?
You should have received packaging material in the post with instructions. Please contact our customer experience team on 0808 169 9968 or email [email protected] One of our team will arrange for the return of the product and answer any questions you may have.
