Product recalls of toy and play equipment often times come “too little – too late” for children who have already been injured by a defective toy or play equipment. Nevertheless, recalls of dangerous toys and play equipment are vital to the future safety of children. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced a voluntary recall of a tent that was sold by IKEA. It was reported that the BUSA children’s folding tent had a steel wire frame that could protrude through the fabric which, in turn, could cause a puncture or laceration hazard for children. The tent was manufactured in Vietnam. See IKEA – U.S. Product Safety Commission Announce Voluntary Recall of Children’s Play Tent.
