WASHINGTON -- IKEA North America Service issued a voluntary recall for approximately 2,200 PAX AURLAND wardrobe mirror doors due to a laceration hazard.
The IKEA wardrobe mirror door recalls were jointly announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada. About 1,700 of the mirror doors were sold in the U.S. and about 500 were sold in Canada since October 2010.
The mirror door is made of foil-coated particleboard and the mirror of glass. The mirror is secured with metal fastenings at top and bottom. The mirror door measures about 191/2 inches wide, 93 inches high and 7/8 inches thick. The units were manufactured in Sweden and retailed for approximately $50.
The CPSC said the mirror glass can detach from the wardrobe door, fall and shatter. IKEA has received reports of 14 incidents including one minor injury in Europe. No incidents have been reported in the U.S. or Canada.
IKEA is offering a free replacement door to consumers who return the recalled product.
