IKEA North America Service is recalling about 58,000 BUSA children’s folding tents, 51,000 in the United States and 7,000 in Canada
The steel wire frame of the tent can break, producing sharp wire ends that can protrude through the tent fabric, posing a laceration or puncture hazard IKEA and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement.
Three incidents were reported, including one injury. No incidents were reported in the U.S. or Canada.
The recall involves a cube-shaped children’s folding tent with model number 90192009. The brand name BUSA and IKEA and the model number are printed on a sewn-in label attached to an interior seam in the tent.
The tent frame is made of flat steel wire, and the tent material is pale green polyester fabric with turquoise, pink, and white trim. The tent’s dimensions are: length, width, and height, 28¼ inches.
Manufactured in Vietnam, the tents were sold only at IKEA stores nationwide from August 2011 through September 2011 for about $8.
Consumers should immediately take the tent away from children and return it to their nearest IKEA store for a refund, the company and commission advise.
