Ikea recently announced a voluntary recall of their BUSA children’s folding tent. The recall was initiated because the steel wire of the kid’s tent can break, creating sharp wire ends that can protude through the tent fabric, posing a laceration or puncture hazard. There have been three reports received of the tent breaking, including one injury report.
The recalled children’s tents are cube-shaped and made of flat, steel wire with model number 90192009. The tent material is pale green with turquoise, pink and white trim. They have the brand name BUSA and IKEA and the model number printed on a sewn-in label that is attached to an interior seam in the tent. The tent’s dimensions are: L 28 1/4, W 28 1/4, H 28 1/4. Approximately 58,000 folding tents have been recalled in the United States, plus 7,000 tents in Canada.
The recalled children’s tents were sold for about $8 at IKEA stores nationwide from August 2011 through September 2011. Consumers should immediately take the tent away from children and return it to IKEA for a full refund. For more information, consumers may contact IKEA at (888) 966-4532, on online at www.ikea.com.
