IKEA issues an emergency recall of popular bookshelves and cabinets seven years later

Retail giant IKEA has issued an emergency recall because popular items sold over the past seven years could be seriously injured.

Hemnes bookshelves and glass door cabinets have been recalled by Swedish retailers after people were injured by falling shelves.

The product was sold nationwide between April 2010 and April 2017.

On the IKEA customer service portal, the recall notice states that the Hemnes shelves may shrink and move in a dry indoor climate, resulting in the shelves falling.

“A defect has occurred and injured consumers,” said the recall notice.

Solid wood bookshelves and glass door cabinets were sold in a variety of shapes and sizes.
