There is a recall for BUSA children’s folding tents, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada. There are about 58,000 folding tents – 51,000 in the United States – involved in the recall.
This recall involves a cube-shaped children’s folding tent with model number 90192009. The brand name BUSA and IKEA, where the tents were exclusively sold, apparently. The model numbers are printed on a sewn-in label attached to an interior seam in the folding tent. The tent frame is made of flat steel wire and the tent material is pale green polyester fabric with turquoise, pink and white trim.
The problem with these Vietnamese-made folding tents is that the steel wireframe of the tent can break, producing sharp wire ends that can protrude through the tent fabric, posing a laceration or puncture hazard.
No injuries have been reported. I’m not sure what brought this defect to IKEA’s or the USCP’s attention.
