Two super-popular Ikea furnishings have been urgently recalled. There are fears that the items are dangerous as they could collapse and cause injury.
The ACCC has issued a warning to those customers who have bought the Ikea HEMNES bookcase and glass-door cabinet shelves between April 2010 to April 2017, online or in-store.
It has been reported that this furniture could shrink and move in a dry indoor climate. This could result in the shelves and cabinets falling and causing injury.
Ikea has received the “occasional” report from Europe and North America about the shelves on these items shrinking or moving during the winter.
The recall notice said: “The HEMNES bookcases and glass-door cabinets are made of solid wood, designed to last and keep their place in the home of Ikea customers for a long time.”
Those who own a HEMNES bookcase or cabinet manufactured before 2017 can order replacement longer shelf support pins by contacting their closest IKEA store or the IKEA Customer Support Centre.
IKEA Customer Support Centres are open Monday to Sunday, 8am – 9.30pm Vic/Tas – 03 8523 2154 ACT/NSW – 02 8020 6641 Qld/NT – 07 3380 6800 SA – 08 8154 4532 WA – 08 9201 4532 or visit www.IKEA.com.au/recalls
