IKEA is recalling the children’s bib MATVRÅ, Blue/Red 2-pack, due to choking hazard.
IKEA urges all customers that have purchased the bib MATVRÅ, Blue/Red 2-pack, to stop using it and return the product to IKEA for a full refund or a similar product. A proof of purchase (receipt) is not required.
IKEA had received report that the button on the children’s bib MATVRÅ, Blue/Red 2-pack, can come off, and, thus, present a choking hazard for children. Following an immediate review, IKEA has decided to conduct a global recall on the product to ensure the safety of the customers and prevent potential accidents.
“The safety of customers is a top priority for IKEA, where all products are tested and comply with applicable standards and legislation,” said Emelie Knoester, Business Area Manager at IKEA of Sweden, “It has come to our attention that there is a risk for the button to come off if the child pulls at it, which is why we choose to recall the children’s bib MATVRÅ Blue/Red 2-pack as a precautionary measure.” Knoester also added: “the bibs with the same name, MATVRÅ, in fruit/vegetables pattern, green/yellow, are safe to use due to different material and design.”
