In a press release, IKEA North America Services LLC, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada, today announced a voluntary safety recall of their ANTILOP High Chairs. The recall is due to eight reports that the company received stating that the restraint buckles opened unexpectedly and affects about 169,000 chairs worldwide. The chairs included in the recall were manufactured between July 2006 and November 2009 and are from supplier 17389. (Model 701.467.92, Model 501.467.93 and Model 300.697.24.) Consumers are being asked to stop using the chairs at once and contact the company to receive a free replacement seat restraint.
As a Lebanon personal injury attorney, I’ve seen this kind of voluntary safety recall many times over the coarse of my practice and understand the tragic accidents that can result from the use of such defective products. If you’ve sustained an injury through the normal use of a defective product, it may be in your interests to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area to discuss your rights as a consumer and the possible legal options that may be available.Tweet
