Ikea issues recall for fall hazard

Posted under Racine defective child care products attorneys

The Swedish company, Ikea, has issued a recall of millions of “Antilop” plastic high chairs sold worldwide for a potential falling hazard.

About 169,000 high chairs sold in North America and 1.2 million in Europe are affected by the recall. Ikea received eight complaints worldwide of children falling out of the chairs after the belt restraint became unclasped. Three children sustained minor injuries due to the fall.

The “Antilop” high chairs came in white, red, and blue plastic seats with silver removable legs. They were sold in the United States from August 2006 to January 2010. Customers who have purchased the recalled product should stop using it immediately and can take it to any Ikea location for a free belt restraint replacement.
