According to the CPSC, an infant or young child can get entangled at the neck in the canopy’s fabric, posing a strangulation hazard. There have been nine reports worldwide of children getting entangled in the bed canopies, including one in the US involving a 7-month-old girl who pulled the Canopy’s fabric into her crib and wrapped it around her neck several times. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Children’s Bed Canopies and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund.
