Parents are being told to stop using a particular type of high chair sold at IKEA.
The retailer and the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced today it is recalling 600 LEOPARD high chairs because the seat may break.
IKEA has received 11 reports worldwide of failing snap locks, including one report of a child falling through the frame and suffering bruised legs.
The recall involves all colors of the LEOPARD highchairs sold as a seat and a frame individually. The seat and tray has an adhesive label affixed to the underside with the words LEOPARD and “Made in Italy,” an eight-digit article number and a five-digit supplier number (19589).
IKEA stores sold the chairs nationwide from October 2009 through November 2009 for about $60. The frame sold for $40 and the seat for $20.
You can return the chairs to IKEA for a full refund. If you have questions contact IKEA toll-free at (888) 966-4532 anytime, or visit IKEA's web site.
