IKEA recalls LEOPARD Children’s High Chair
22 December 2009, IKEA wants customers who have a LEOPARD children’s high chair to stop using the high chair immediately and bring the seat and frame back to the Returns counter at any IKEA store where they will receive a full refund.
Snap locks that secure the seat to the frame can break, making it possible for the seat to drop through the frame. Children can suffer injury to the head and other parts of the body from falls. Detached snap locks pose a choking hazard to children.
IKEA has received eleven reports of broken snap locks, including one incident where the seat with child dropped through the frame. The child suffered bruised legs. In a second incident a detached snap lock was found in a child’s mouth but was removed before choking occurred.
No other incidents or injuries have been reported.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
