Approximately 58,000 folding tents for children were recalled due to laceration and puncture hazards. IKEA announced the recall along with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission because the steep wire frame may break, creating a laceration hazard due to the sharp wire that can protrude through the tent’s fabric. Three incidents have been reported so far, involving one injury. The cube-shaped tents have a specific model number with the IKEA brand printed on their label. They were sold in IKEA stores across the country for approximately $8 each August 2011 to September 2011. The tents were made in Vietnam. Customers are urged to return them as soon as possible to the nearest IKEA in order to receive a full refund, according to news reports.
