    IKEA Canada is asking customers who have a FÖRSTÅ coffee/tea maker to immediately stop using the product and bring it back to any IKEA store for a full refund.
    Pressure from the metal holder on the glass pot can potentially cause it to break unexpectedly, posing a burn hazard.

    IKEA has received two reports in Canada of the glass pot breaking, one where the customer received minor cuts and one with no injury. Eighteen additional reports of the glass pot breaking have been reported outside of Canada resulting in twelve reports of burn injures from spilt coffee/tea.

    FÖRSTÅ coffee/tea maker in the 1L size was sold at IKEA stores in Canada between February - December 2010.

    IKEA does not compromise on product safety and recommend all customers concerned to return the FÖRSTÅ coffee/tea maker for a full refund.

    IKEA has decided to make a voluntary and precautionary recall for repair of SNIGLAR crib 70x132.

    The four bolts provided with some SNIGLAR cribs to secure the mattress support are not long enough. This can cause the mattress support to detach and collapse, creating a risk of entrapment and suffocation to a child in the crib.

    IKEA has received no incident reports due to cribs being assembled with the short bolts and SNIGLAR crib 70x132 is in full compliance with all applicable safety standards.

    IKEA is asking customers who have purchased the RUND glass mug to immediately stop using the mug and bring it back to any IKEA store for a full refund.

    There have been no reported cases of injury in Canada. Globally, IKEA has received twelve reports of RUND glass mugs that have broken in use. Five of the reports stated that minor injury had occurred.

    On receiving reports with glass breakage IKEA began an investigation, which revealed variations in glass thickness.

    As a precautionary measure IKEA has therefore decided to recall RUND glass mugs on all markets.

    At IKEA, the safety and security of our customers and co-workers is a top priority. Therefore, we recommend all customers concerned to return the RUND glass mug for a full refund.
