I have a salt lamp that appears to NOT be included in the current recall and from a different manufacturer but we just experienced the same safety problem. My family smelled something 'hot' or burning and began to investigate around all our electronics and discovered it was coming from the salt lamp cord. The on/off dimmer switch on the cord was overheating and was melting along the seem and it was so hot that one could barely touch it!
The label sticker shows manufacturer WBM International, the base is also stamped with that company logo and shows model 1000 series, the switch is stamped Zing Ear ZE-04.
I've searched and according to WBM their lamps are just fine and safe (see below blog from their website) and states they've no reports of this issue and that it's just 'other' manufactures. I've also emailed them our concern.
