File your claim with your insurance carrier and let them subrogate back against the manufacturer.

But we don't need any regulations because a free market is utopia.

"Recall too late" um. . . correct me if I am wrong, but arent incidents like these what initiate recalls? . . . its called hindsight . . . nobody can predict it

==nobody can predict it== Perhaps the folks who devised and manufactured the lamp could have predicted it.

Only question I have is if this product was tested by Underwriters Laboratory. If not, it should never have been bought. You may complain about regulations, but this company was lucky.

It's interesting that companies are always willing to work with the consumer once the media gets involved. The customer is always wrong until it costs the company some bad PR.
