Associated Recall
Incident Details
  • Incident Description: IKEA glass desktop spontaneously Exploded during the night. My cat cut her paw, my laptop and several other items on my desk were damaged, and I’m picking out shards of glass from my foot. This looks to be a reoccurring issue with this product according to media accounts yet IKEA has failed to issue a recall on the product. I’m consider myself incredibly lucky not to have been sitting at or near the desk when it exploded as no Doubt I would have maimed by the exploding glass.
