Highchairs Sold at Ikea Recalled

Dec 23, 2009 | Parker Waichman LLP

Parent and caregivers who purchased "Leopard" highchairs at Ikea are being warned not to used them.  The Ikea "Leopard" highchairs pose a choking a fall hazard to children.

 This recall involves all colors of the "Leopard" highchairs sold as a seat and a frame individually. The seat and tray has an adhesive label affixed to the underside with the words Leopard and “Made in Italy,” an eight-digit article number and a five-digit supplier number (19589).  

The "Leopard" highchairs were sold at Ikea stores nationwide from October 2009 through November 2009 for about $60. The frame sold for $40 and the seat for $20.

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.

Consumers can return the "Leopard" highchairs to  to any IKEA store for a full refund.  For additional information, contact Ikea toll-free at (888) 966-4532 anytime, or visit the firm’s Web site at
