Ikea issues worldwide recall of high chairs

Posted under Sheboygan defective child care products attorneys

Millions of Ikea’s “Antilop” plastic high chairs are being recalled after the company received eight complaints worldwide of children falling out of the chair. Three children sustained minor injuries after their fall.

Nearly 169,000 of the “Antilop” high chairs sold in North America and 1.2 million in Europe are affected by the recall. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the belt restraint on the chair can unexpectedly become unbuckled, creating the falling hazard.

The “Antilop” high chair came in white, red, and blue plastic seats with removable silver legs. Consumers who have purchased the product should stop using it immediately and can bring it to any Ikea location for a free belt restraint replacement.
