NATIONAL – Ikea is recalling “Leopard” highchairs that pose a fall and choking risk to children. Consumers should immediately stop using the “Leopard” highchairs and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund.
According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), snap locks used to secure the highchair seat to the frame can break and allow the seat and child to drop through the frame. Ikea has received 11 reports worldwide of failing snap locks, including one report of a child falling through the frame and suffering bruised legs. In addition, the firm has one report of a child mouthing a detached snap lock. No incidents have been reported in the United States
