IKEA recalls 'hazardous' wardrobe

IKEA has recalled a wardrobe with a sliding glass door over fears that the heavy mirror could fall and break.

FLAT-PACK FURNITURE supplier IKEA has recalled one of its wardrobes over fears that it could pose a hazard to users.

The UK and Irish divisions of the company sent out the recall notice this morning, warning that it had received reports that the large mirror on the sliding door of the wardrobe could detach, fall and break, creating sharp shards of glass.

“The mirror is heavy and combined with the risk of breaking it poses a hazard to users,” said IKEA.

The sliding mirror that features on the Elga wardrobe is made by three different suppliers but only one is being recalled. The company has asked those who purchased the product from supplier #12650 to contact customer service.

The supplier number is printed on the back of the door at its base, together with a ‘Made in Sweden’ logo.

IKEA told that these doors are no longer available for purchase despite their appearance on the retailer’s website.

“Elga Fenstad sliding mirror doors produced by suppliers no 18351 and 21209 are not affected, and safe to use. These doors have been produced using another production method,” the company said in a statement.

Here’s what the wardrobe looks like:
