IKEA, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has announced a voluntary recall of their children’s folding tents due to a laceration hazard, according to recent news sources.
About 58,000 of the BUSA tents are subject to recall. The tent has a steel wire frame which has proven to break, exposing sharp wire ends that can hurt children or adults handling the tent. To date, three incidents and one injury have been reported.
The tent’s model number is 90192009. The tent is cube-shaped with BUSA, IKEA, and the model number on a label that is sewn to a seam inside the tent. The tent is pale green in color and has turquoise, white, and pink trim. The tent’s dimensions are: L 28 1/4, W 28 1/4, H 28 1/4.
The tent was sold only in IKEA stores across the nation from August to September 2011. It retailed for about $8. Consumers should take the tent away from children and can return it to IKEA for a refund in full.
