Product Recalls

July 19, 2006

The following recalls have been announced:

_About 100,000 Lycksele chair beds and sofa beds, made by IKEA Home Furnishings, because people can get their fingers caught in the folding portion of the bed. The company has received one report of a finger tip being amputated.

The beds have iron frames and natural wood slats; the chair beds are stamped with article number 700-326-82 and the sofa beds with article number 900-326-81. The number is printed on a white sticker on the underside of the product. The sticker also has a four-digit number indicating a date; the affected chair and sofa beds were sold before July 2005 and are stamped 0526 and earlier. The first two numbers indicate the year and the second two numbers indicate the week. Beds stamped 0527 and later are not affected.

IKEA stores and the company’s Web site sold these beds from April 1999 until last month. For more information, call the company at 888-966-4532, visit a local IKEA store, or visit http://www.ikea-usa.com or http://www.cpsc.gov

The serial numbers are printed on the side of the watch, and the model number is printed on the back.
