Ikea is recalling more than 22,00 mirrors that could fall and pose a laceration hazard to customers, according to federal safety regulators.
The plastic fittings on Ikea's LETTAN flat mirrors, which attach the mirror to the wall, have the potential to break and cause the mirror to fall, according to a notice posted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
"IKEA develops its products using a rigorous risk assessment and testing program, to make sure that the products live up to all applicable laws and standards on the markets where they are sold," the company said in a statement on its website.

Still, "it has come to our attention that some of the fittings that attach LETTAN mirrors to the wall, have been breaking," the company continued. "This has in turn led to some mirrors unexpectedly falling."
The recall was initiated after the Swedish furniture company received 55 reports of such incidents occurring around the world. This includes one report of a mirror falling off the wall in the U.S., officials said.
