IKEA recalls children’s bed canopies for risk of strangulation
21 March 2014, IKEA kindly asks customers who have a bed canopy from IKEA intended to be draped around children’s cots/beds, to stop using it with infants and small children and bring it back to any IKEA store for a full refund.
The affected bed canopies are: MINNEN bed Canopy set, BARNSLIG BOLL, MINNEN Brodyr, HIMMEL, FABLER and TISSLA.
IKEA has identified a potential strangulation hazard associated with these products. IKEA has received reports of entanglement when net is pulled into the cots/beds and entangled around infant’s necks. No permanent injury has been reported.
The affected bed canopies have been sold on IKEA markets since 1996 and in Japan since 2006.
IKEA apologise for the inconvenience.
