IKEA calls off Rumanian beds

The Swedish furniture maker IKEA is calling off 6,000 children’s beds due to a production fault. According to the company’s press service, the beds in question, Sniglar, made at IKEA’s Rumania-based factories, are now being called off in Canada. The problem is that the fastening bolts for the beds turned out to be too short; as a result, the beds can collapse and therefore hurt the children. The beds were sold between October 2005 and June 2010, RBC reports.

IKEA pointed out that no problems have been recorded up to now. However, the company strongly recommends that all Sniglar beds should be checked for sturdiness.

This particular bed is, in fact, also available in Russia, including Yekaterinburg.
