Comments Off

IKEA Home Furnishings and the Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced the recall of around 100,000 LYCKSELE folding chair beds and sofa beds after the company received a report that a consumer amputated a finger tip when using the folding mechanism.

Description and Models: This recall involves LYCKSELE chair beds and sofa beds produced before July 2005 and date stamped (year/week) 0526 and earlier. The frames are constructed of iron and have natural wood slats. IKEA, the article number (700-326-82 chair bed and 900-326-81 sofa bed), and a four digit date stamp printed on a white sticker located on the underside of the product.

Remedy: Consumers who have a LYCKSELE chair bed or sofa bed date stamped 0526 or earlier and which is missing safety covers for the folding mechanism should call or visit their local IKEA store to receive free safety covers which fit over the folding mechanism to prevent finger access. LYCKSELE chair beds and sofa beds produced since July 2005 (date stamp 0527 and later) were sold with safety covers.
