Read on for the official recall notice and more details about the tent…IKEA Recall: Children’s Play Tent

IKEA asks customers who have a BUSA children’s folding tent to immediately take away the tent from children and bring it back to any IKEA store where they will receive a full refund.

The steel wire frame of the tent can break in use. This can cause sharp wire ends to protrude through the tent fabric, creating a risk of a laceration or puncture injury to a child playing with the tent.

IKEA is aware of three incident reports, none in the US or Canada. One minor injury were reported which didn’t require medical attention.

The BUSA children’s tent has been sold on all IKEA markets, since 1st of August 2011.

IKEA apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.

For more information, please contact IKEA toll-free (888) 966-4532.

If you purchased a BUSA tent at IKEA, please return the product to the store for a full refund. For more information, contact IKEA directly.

  1. That’s odd because I’ve got one of these (in the UK) I got it about 6 years ago. It’s exactly the same, but red instead of green.
    Since it has never given us any problems, and the kids still play with it) I suppose mine is okay.

    … why is it strange, when your tent is not the run being recalled?
