IKEA recalls faulty children’s furniture



Swedish home goods store IKEA has issued a recall of two models of children’s beds over concerns about a model rod in the products that could break and cause injury.

The recall affects some 200,000 Kritter and Sniglar junior beds that were sold in 17 countries, including Qatar.

Thus far, IKEA said in a statement on its website that there have been seven reported cases of a metal rod in the beds breaking and exposing sharp edges, though there have been no injuries.

Customers have been asked to collect a reparation kit from IKEA or can return the beds for a refund or store credit. The Peninsula spoke to a sales representative in Qatar who said:

“The refunding will be provided only if the customers bring the product unopened with original packaging and the invoice within seven days from the date of purchase…

If the product found open for use, the customers will have to buy some other items instead of cash refund.”

According to the BBC, the other countries affected are: Belgium, Britain, China, Czech Republic, Ireland, Israel, Luxembourg, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand and Turkey.

Do you own one of these beds? Thoughts?
