The pullout also applies to IKEA stores in Canada. Stores in France and Australia started phasing out the incandescent bulbs last year.

"Eliminating incandescents is just one simple way for IKEA customers to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gases," Mike Ward, U.S. IKEA president, said in a statement Tuesday.

IKEA's available lighting options include the compact fluorescent bulb, LED, halogen and solar-powered lamps.

IKEA, based in Sweden, currently has more than 300 stores in 37 countries.
