IKEA recently announced a recall of wardrobe doors with full-length mirrors. The recall was initiated after IKEA received fourteen reports of incidents, including one minor injury in Europe. No incidents have been reported in the United States or Canada.
The wardrobe mirror doors can detach unexpectedly from the wardrobe, fall, and shatter, which poses a laceration hazard.
The recalled mirror doors were sold at IKEA stores nationwide from October 2010 through September 2011. The mirror doors are model number 101-604-51, supplier number 12650 and production weeks 1039 through 1048. The product name “PAX AURLAND” and “IKEA” and production week are printed on the rear of the mirror door on the lower edge. The mirror door is made of foil-coated particleboard and the mirror of glass. The mirror is secured with metal fastenings at top and bottom. The mirror door measures approximately 19-1/2” wide, 93 inches tall and 7/8” thick.
Approximately 1,700 wardrobe mirror doors were sold in the United States and 500 in Canada from October 2010 through September 2011 for about $60.
According to the recall notice, consumers should immediately contact their local IKEA store for instructions on returning the mirror wardrobe door for a free replacement door.
