IKEA urgently recalls SEVEN YEARS' worth of popular products

·2-min read

IKEA have issued an urgent recall for anyone who purchased a popular bookcase sold nationally between 2010 and 2017.

The Hemnes bookcase or glass-door cabinet was sold between April 1, 2010 and April 1, 2017.

The products have been recalled for repair after it was discovered that the shelves can shrink and move in a dry indoor climate, which can result in shelves falling.

The affected products are the solid timber bookcase and glass-doored cabinets with movable shelves in various sizes and colours. 

The product label can be found on the bottom of the shelves, with consumers told to look for date stamps between 2010-04-01 to 2017-04-01, and contact IKEA if your dates match the recall.

If your model is defective, IKEA will provide shelf support pins and instructions on how to install the pins to keep your shelves – and items – in place for no charge.

Consumers are asked to visit the IKEA website for more information.

The ACCC recalled the Talkira and Heroisk range for plates, bowls and mugs.
