IKEA announced last week that it will be recalling its “Antilop” plastic high chairs after it received eight complaints worldwide of children falling out of the chair. Three of the children suffered minor injuries.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the belt restraint on the high chair can become unclasped, creating a falling hazard. 169,000 were sold in North America and over 1.2 million in Europe. The “Antilop” chair was sold in the United States from August 2006 to January 2010.
The chair came in red, blue, and white plastic seats with four detachable silver legs. If you have purchased the “Antilop” high chair, stop using it immediately and contact the nearest IKEA location about receiving a free belt restraint replacement.
