CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. - Home furnishings retailer IKEA released a safety announcement for its Hemnes bookcases and glass cabinets sold in U.S. stores and online from April 2010 to April 2017.
According to the company, it received 29 global reports of injury due to shelves falling from the Hemnes units due to wood shrinkage. Seventeen of those reported incidents occurred in the U.S., resulting in minor cuts or bruises.
IKEA is offering longer shelf support pins for the cabinets free of charge. No proof of purchase is needed to obtain replacement pins.
