IKEA Recalls Faulty High Chairs


Furniture giant IKEA is recalling more than 160,000 high chairs in the U.S. and Canada over fears that faulty safety belts could lead to injury.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the restraint buckle on the “Antilop” high chair can open unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard. IKEA has already received three reports of children receiving minor injuries after falling from the chair.

The affected high chairs are made of either red, blue or white plastic with removable silver legs. They were sold from August 2006 to January 2010 at IKEA stores for about $20.

Consumers who have one of the recalled high chairs are advised to stop using it immediately and contact IKEA to obtain a free replacement seat restraint.
