IRVING, Texas (CBS) – They may look nice in your home, but a popular gift is being recalled because it can start a fire.

About 80,000 rock salt lamps sold under the Lumiere brand at Michaels are now being called unsafe.

While no injuries have been reported yet, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says “the dimmer switch and/or outlet plug can overheat and ignite, posing shock and fire hazards.”

Anyone who has one should stop using it and return it to a Michael’s for a full refund.

    I was given one from a different maker, but same design. First thing I did was swap out the crummy dimmer switch for a quality in-line on/off switch. Good to go then.
