Ikea recalls cot canopies for strangulation risk

Posted: Updated:

 

   STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Swedish furniture retailer Ikea is recalling children's bed canopies because of a strangulation risk.

   The company says that after receiving complaints from customers it has identified the risk of potential harm in canopies used to cover cots in the models: Legendarisk, Minnen bed canopy set, Barnslig Boll, Minnen Brodyr, Himmel, Fabler, Tissla and Klammig. About 2.7 million canopies have been sold in all Ikea markets since 1996.

   Ikea said Thursday it was not aware of any reports of "permanent injury," but that customers had complained of canopy nets being pulled into cots and becoming entangled around infants' necks.

   The furniture giant said it will fully refund customers for the canopy purchases when returned to the retailer.
