Thousands of Himalayan salt lamps are being recalled by Michaels arts and crafts stores after the items are said to pose a shock and fire hazard.

The problem is with the product's dimmer switch, according to WFMY 2 News. Those who own a Himalayan Salt Lamp can return them to any Michaels store in the United States.

Salt lamps have been popular in recent years, due, in-part, to claims that the product can deodorize the air, prevent allergic reactions and even cause people to experience better moods, according to Good House Keeping.

The company issued the recall voluntarily after over concerns about the dimmer’s or switches on these lamps overheating and catching fire, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The recall involves about 80,000 pink lamps that are mounted on a wooden base or in a black metal basket and sold in black cardboard boxes with a photo of the lamp on the front.

Here’s a list of all the product names and numbers that are being recalled.

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

Michaels began selling the salt lamps in July, both in stores and online.
