IKEA Recalls over 25,000 Mirrors in the U.S. and Canada due to Potential Hazard
In a recent announcement, Swedish furniture giant IKEA has issued a recall for over 25,000 mirrors sold in the United States and Canada. The LETTAN mirrors, of which approximately 14,600 were sold in the U.S. and 10,500 in Canada, have been found to pose a potential hazard to consumers.
The mirrors come with plastic fittings that have been known to break, causing the mirror to fall and potentially harm individuals. This latest recall follows a previous one in March 2023 when IKEA received a total of 65 reports about the mirrors globally, including 56 in the previous recall. Fortunately, no injuries relating to these mirrors have been reported so far.
These LETTAN mirrors were available for purchase in U.S. stores and online between December 2019 and June 2023 at prices ranging from $29.99 to $55.99. As a preventive measure, consumers are advised to immediately stop using the mirrors and get in touch with IKEA for free replacement wall fittings.
To ensure consumer safety, the recall encompasses all sizes of LETTAN flat mirrors, with specific article numbers and date stamps mentioned. To help customers with the disassembly process, IKEA provides detailed instructions on its website. Additionally, the company offers full refunds to those who return the mirrors to any IKEA store, irrespective of proof of purchase.
Customers seeking further information can reach out to IKEA via their toll-free number or visit their website for assistance. It is worth noting that IKEA is committed to ensuring the safety and satisfaction of its customers and urges all affected individuals to take the necessary steps to address this potential safety issue promptly.
As of now, no injuries have been reported, and IKEA is working diligently to rectify the situation by replacing the faulty wall fittings.
