According to a series of recent articles, IKEA has issued a recall announcement for over 5,000 units of IKEA 365 + SÄNDA track, 28″ and 45″ straight track systems in the United States.
The official recall statement issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has reveled that these systems were designed to keep power light fixtures attached and according to the firm IKEA, these white, track devices are being recalled over possible electric shock hazards.
All 97,000 units of this device sold worldwide are listed under this recall announcement and according to the federal agency, units were sold between the months of September 2011 and March 2012. Although no injuries or incidents have been reported, the federal agency has stated these units should not be used until further notice. If you own one of these recalled units, contact the manufacturer as soon as possible or simply return the device to the store of purchase for a full refund or replacement unit.
Consumers may identify the recalled products by the supplier number 21338 and model numbers 00149242 and 10149246.
Hopefully, this recall campaign is successful and these items are going to be returned to the manufacturer before injuries are reported. As a personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles, I’d simply be heartbroken to learn that someone was injured as a result of an incidents caused by these recalled products.
I encourage you to act fast and contact the manufacturer if you have any concerns or questions related to this recall.
