IKEA highchair danger

Customers urged to return dangerous LEOPARD highchairs to UAE IKEA stores...

IKEA, the Swedish home furnishings store, has requested that its customers in the UAE stop using and return potentially faulty LEOPARD children's high chair to any of its stores in the UAE.

The statement from the store said: "IKEA has received eleven reports of broken snap locks, including one incident where the seat with child dropped through the frame. The child suffered bruised legs. In a second incident a detached snap lock was found in a child's mouth but was removed before choking occurred. No further incidents or injuries have been reported. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause."

The store has started an "urgent investigation" into the cause of the fault. It however maintained that the product is tested in its own laboratory in Sweden against stringent European and US safety regulations.
