IKEA Expands March Recall of LETTAN Mirrors Due to Laceration Hazard

IKEA has expanded a recall of its LETTAN mirrors, following its recall earlier this year in March, due to the same safety issue: The plastic fittings which attach the mirrors to walls can break, causing the mirrors fall and pose a laceration hazard.

Ten more incidents have been reported to IKEA, on top of  the 55 incidents reported in the first recall. No injuries have been reported, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The mirrors are frameless, about 38 inches high and were sold in 23, 31, 39 and 47 inches wide sizes. Included in the recall are all LETTAN mirrors with a date stamp before and including 2105 (YYWW), and LETTAN mirrors with supplier number 21944 and a date stamp before and including 2325 (YYWW). The date stamp is in (YYWW) format where the first two digits represent the year, and the last two digits represent the week of manufacture. The date stamp is located on the back of the mirror.

Consumers should immediately stop use of the recalled mirrors and contact IKEA for a free set of replacement wall fittings and instructions. Alternatively, customers can return the mirror to any IKEA store for a full refund. Proof of purchase (a receipt) will not be required for the full refund.

For more information, customers can call IKEA toll-free at 888-966-4532 from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. They can also visit the recall page online at www.ikea.com/us/en/customer-service/product-support/recalls.
