WASHINGTON, April 23 (UPI) -- Import business West Elm is recalling about 900 floor lamps due to the risk of electric shock, U.S. regulators said.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said West Elm, a division of Williams-Sonoma Inc. of San Francisco, is recalling Industrial Overarching model floor lamps with an iron base and a swiveling, triple-jointed arm in an antique bronze finish.

The lamps are about 78 inches tall with a 21-inch diameter base.

The recalled lamps bear model Nos. 192799, 192856, 465906 or 465922 on their packaging.

Lamps involved in the recall were made between August 2001 and February 2013.

They were sold at West Elm stores and online from December 2012 through February 2013 for abut $380 with a shade and $300 without a shade.

Consumers were advised to unplug the lamps and return them to West Elm for a free refund. The company will also reimburse consumers for shipping costs.

Consumers can call 855-776-6953 for information.
