Children’s Bed Canopies Recalled: Strangulation Hazard
About the Bed Canopies Recall
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the mesh canopies hang from the ceiling onto a child’s bed or crib, and an infant or young child could get entangled at the neck in the fabric of the canopy.
IKEA has recieved nine reports of children becoming tangled in the fabric canopies, including one in which the canopy had become wrapped around a 7-month-old girl's neck.
The CPSC suggests that consumers stop using the canopies immediately and also return them to IKEA stores for a full refund.
