IKEA recalls LATTJO Bat cape due to risk of strangulation or injuries to the neck
07 April 2016
IKEA urges customers who have a LATTJO Bat cape to immediately stop children from playing with it and to bring it back to any IKEA store for a full refund.
IKEA is recalling LATTJO Bat cape after reports about three children that have received marks and scratches on the neck while using LATTJO Bat capes. The cape got stuck and didn’t detach easily enough from the neck of the children.
No injuries which required medical treatment have been reported, but due to the risk of strangulation or injuries to the neck, IKEA takes precautionary measures and recalls the product.
LATTJO Bat cape has been sold since October 2015 in Japan.
The LATTJO Bat cape can be returned to any IKEA store for a full refund. Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required. For more information, please visit www.IKEA.JP or contact IKEA toll-free 0120-151-870.
IKEA apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
