Product Recall: IKEA Children’s Bed Canopies

by | Apr 23, 2014 | Product Recalls |

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. The canopy’s fabric may pose a strangulation hazard to children.
