The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with IKEA, announced a voluntary recall of about 2,862,000(255,000 in the United States, 7,000 in Canada and 2.6 million worldwide) Children’s bed canopies because an infant or young child can get entangled at the neck in the canopy’s fabric, posing a strangulation hazard.
There have been nine reports worldwide of children getting entangled in the bed canopies, including one in the U.S. involving a 7-month-old girl who pulled the canopy’s fabric into her crib and wrapped it around her neck several times.
This recall involves IKEA children’s bed canopies. The canopies are made out of mesh fabric and hang from the ceiling onto a child’s crib or bed. They measure about 7 ft. long and about 2 ft. in diameter. The canopy’s name is printed on the washing instructions label sewn onto the bottom of the fabric.
