About 58,000 IKEA children’s folding tents have been recalled after reports indicate that the wire frame may break and create a potential laceration or puncture hazard for children.
The IKEA tent recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on October 6, after three incidents involving the tents were reported. One of the reports involved an injury, but the severity of the injury and whether it involved a child were not released.
The CPSC has determined that the tent’s steel wire frame can break, which can cause sharp wire ends to stick through the tent fabric. This puts children and other occupants in danger of laceration or puncture wounds.
