Product Recall: Ikea Leopard Highchairs
Filed under: Alerts & Recalls
Ikea and the Consumer Product Safety Commission have issued a voluntary recall of the Leopard Highchairs due to fall and choking hazards.
The snap locks that secure the seat to the frame can break and allow the seat -- and child -- to slip through the frame. The detached snap locks may also pose a choking hazard. The recall includes all colors of the Leopard set (sold as a seat and frame individually). Check to see if your chair is part of the recall by looking for the words "Leopard" and "Made in Italy" on the underside of the seat and the tray. Additionally, the units will have the five-digit supplier number (19589).
There have been 11 reports worldwide including a child falling through and suffering bruised legs. Another incident reported the finding of the snap lock in a child's mouth. No incidents have been reported in the United Sates.
Return the highchairs to any Ikea store for a full refund. For more information, call Ikea at 888-966-4532 or visit the company's website.
