With the summer 2011 premier of the new IKEA in Denver, I would guess that several of our children are playing in these potentially dangerous tents. Only three incidents have been reported at this time and only one injury, but with sharp wire ends posing a hazard as they break through the tent fabric, parents should be aware of this recall.
From the Consumer Product Safety Commission:
Name of Product: BUSA children’s folding tent
Units: About 58,000; 51,000 in the United States and 7,000 in Canada
Importer: IKEA North America Service, of Conshohocken, Pa.
Hazard: The steel wire frame of the tent can break, producing sharp
wire ends that can protrude through the tent fabric, posing a laceration or
Incidents/Injuries: Three incidents were reported, including one
injury. No incidents were reported in the US or Canada
Model number 90192009 is printed on a label attached to the interior seam of the tent. They were produced in Vietnam and sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide in August - September 2011 for approximately $8.
The CPSC recommends consumers return the product to the nearest IKEA immediately to receive a full refund. Questions: IKEA at (888) 966-4532 or www.ikea-usa.com.
