Conshohocken, PA — BUSA children’s folding tent by IKEA North America Service are being voluntarily recalled for laceration and puncture hazards the defective product poses to consumers. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada and IKEA announced the product recall on October 6, warning consumers to discontinue using the product.

The recall was instated after discovering that the steel wire frame of the tent can break, which can create sharp wire ends that can protrude through the tent fabric. This poses a laceration and puncture hazard to consumers.

The CPSC reported, “This recall involves a cube-shaped children’s folding tent with model number 90192009. The brand name BUSA and IKEA and the model number are printed on a sewn-in label attached to an interior seam in the tent. The tent frame is made of flat steel wire and the tent material is pale green polyester fabric with turquoise, pink and white trim. The tent’s dimensions are: L 28 1/4, W 28 1/4, H 28 1/4.”

Consumers are advised to return the tents to their local IKEA store to receive a full refund.
