Ikea recalls children’s folding tent

Swedish furniture retailer IKEA has recalled a cube-shaped children’s folding tent after its sharp edges caused at least one injury, officials said

The steel frame on the BUSA children’s folding tent has the potential of breaking and exposing sharp ends, which can cut through the tent and cut someone.

While three incidents, including one minor injury, have been reported worldwide, no incidents have been reported in the U.S. and Canada.

The U.S.  Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada issued the voluntary recall today, advising consumers to stop using the tents immediately and returned to an IKEA store for a refund.


The nearest store in the Valley is on the 600 block of San Fernando Boulevard in Burbank.

The $8 tents were sold from August to September nationwide.
