11/01/2011 // WPB, FL, USA // Injury Lawyers News // Nicole Howley

Conshohocken, PA — IKEA North America Service, Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced a voluntary recall of PAX AURLAND wardrobe mirror doors for laceration hazards the defective product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide recall in the U.S. and Canada on November 1, 2011.

The recall was issued after discovering that the mirror glass can detach unexpectedly from the wardrobe door, fall and shatter, which poses a laceration hazard to consumers.

“This recall involves a wardrobe door with full-length glass mirror with model number 101-604-51, supplier number 12650 and production weeks 1039 through 1048 (YYWW). The product name ‘PAX AURLAND’ and ‘IKEA’ and production week are printed on the rear of the mirror door on the lower edge. The mirror door is made of foil-coated particleboard and the mirror of glass. The mirror is secured with metal fastenings at top and bottom. The mirror door measures about 191/2 inches wide, 93 inches high and 7/8 inches thick,” the CPSC reported.

Consumers are advised to contact their local IKEA store to receive instructions on how to return the mirror wardrobe door for a free replacement door.
