Ikea Children’s Tent Recall: Laceration Hazard
About 58,000 IKEA children’s folding tents have been recalled after reports indicate that the wire frame may break and create a potential laceration or puncture hazard for children.
The IKEA tent recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on October 6, after three incidents involving the tents were reported. One of the reports involved an injury, but the severity of the injury and whether it involved a child were not released.
The CPSC has determined that the tent’s steel wire frame can break, which can cause sharp wire ends to stick through the tent fabric. This puts children and other occupants in danger of laceration or puncture wounds.

The recall affects about 51,000 IKEA BUSA children’s folding tents sold in the U.S. and 7,000 in Canada. The tents are green, cube-shaped, with turquoise, pink and white trim. They have a model number of 90192009 printed on a label attached to an interior seam of the tent along with BUSA and IKEA. The tents are 28 and 1/4 inches tall, wide and long.
The tents were made in Vietnam and sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide for about $8 from August 2011 through September 2011.
The CPSC recommends that consumers immediately take the tents away from children and return them to the nearest IKEA store for a full refund. Consumers with questions can contact IKEA at (888) 966-4532, or visit the company’s website at www.ikea-usa.com.
