Ikea recalls children’s high chair

Furniture giant Ikea today confirmed it was recalling a children’s high chair following safety concerns.

Ikea's Leopard High ChairThe recall comes after reports that locks securing the seat to the frame of the “Leopard” children’s high chair may break, which could result in children dropping through the frame.

One child suffered bruised legs after falling through the chair.

There are also concerns that children could choke on the detached snap locks.

The company is calling for customers with the chairs to stop using them immediately and return the seat and frame to Ikea where they will receive a full refund.

A spokesman for the Swedish retailer said: “Ikea has received 11 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 further incidents or injuries have been reported.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
