According to the news, The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada are recalling a very large number of units of IKEA’s Antilop High Chairs in 3 models jointly. Consumers in the U.S. and Canada should be alert.
This recall has been the result of 8 separate cases of children falling after the restraint buckle opened inadvertently. In all cases, the children sustained mild injuries. IKEA has promised to provide a free replacement of the seat restraint to all parents who own the recalled product.
As a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, I urge consumers to contact the company right away if they have a unit of the recalled high chairs in their homes. Child safety should be everybody’s priority. Do not delay and make sure your child won’t use this recalled product until it’s properly replaced.
Any personal injury lawyer knows about the injuries a recalled child product can entail. If a consumer product seriously injured you or a close friend, contact a personal injury lawyer in your area right away.
