Ikea Recalls Defective Children’s Chair

SINGAPORE: Furniture giant Ikea has issued a global recall of the LEOPARD Children’s High Chair because of a defect.
The chair has been in the market since October this year. Ikea said snap locks that secure the seat to the frame can break, making it possible for the seat to drop. Children can suffer injury to the head and other parts of the body through falls. The detached locks also pose a choking hazard.
The company said that so far, it has received 11 reports of broken locks worldwide.
There have been two incidents in Europe – one, of a child falling from the chair, and another where the detached lock was found in a child’s mouth.
A spokesperson from Ikea Singapore said that so far, there have been no incidents in Singapore. Some 80 units of the product have been sold here. Customers can return the product to Ikea’s Alexandra or Tampines branches. They will get a full refund.
