IKEA HAS issued a recall notice for all of the BUSA children’s folding tents sold through the international chain due to the risk of a “laceration or puncture injury”.The Swedish furniture company said the tent should immediately be taken away from children and warns that “the steel wire frame of the tent can break in use”:

This can cause sharp wire ends to protrude through the tent fabric, creating a risk of a laceration or puncture injury to a child playing with the tent.

The tent, pictured above, has been on sale since the end of June 2011 and customers will be fully refunded when returning it to an IKEA store.

IKEA says it is aware of three reports globally of the wire frame breaking, one of which resulted in what it describes as a minor injury.
