IKEA recalls BARNSLIG baby sleeping bag
25 June 2008, If you have a BARNSLIG baby sleeping bag we kindly ask you to bring it back to IKEA and you will get a full refund.
IKEA has received two customer reports where the zip bottom stop has detached from the zipper which also makes it possible for the zip slider to detach. Both parts could present a choking hazard to small children. No injuries have been reported. The cause of the failure was poor quality of the zipper. We have stopped sales and production of BARNSLIG sleeping bags and we are now reviewing our routines to secure the quality of BARNSLIG.
Children’s safety is always a top priority at IKEA. All products are subject to comprehensive risk analysis and assessment during the development process. As a guiding principle; wherever possible IKEA applies the strictest requirements on any of our sales markets. If an IKEA product does not live up to our demands we act immediately.
The sleeping bags are produced in Indonesia and have been sold since April 2008 on all markets except USA, Canada and the United Arab Emirates. Customers who have a BARNSLIG sleeping bag with date stamps 0745 to 0824 are asked to bring it back to their local IKEA store for a full refund. The date stamp (yyww) is to be found on a label sewn inside the sleeping bag.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
