IKEA is recalling over 25,000 mirrors that have been sold in the U.S. and Canada because they could fall and break, potentially harming customers. The IKEA Lettan mirrors have plastic fittings that attach the mirror to the wall. The fittings can break, which can cause the mirror to fall, “posing a laceration hazard to consumers,” according to IKEA’s website.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, approximately 22,400 of the mirrors were previously recalled in March 2023. Globally, IKEA has received more than 65 reports about the mirrors, including 56 in the previous recall. Consumers are being advised to immediately stop using the recalled mirrors and contact IKEA to order replacement wall fittings free of charge.

Instructions on how to safely disassemble the mirror can be found on IKEA’s website.
