Conshohocken, PA — IKEA and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled ANTILOP high chairs for fall hazards the product poses to young children. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall in the U.S. and Canada on January 5, 2012.

The recall was issued after discovering that the high chair’s restraint buckle can unexpectedly open, which poses a fall hazard to children using the high chair.

IKEA is aware of three instances where a child sustained minor injuries after falling from the chair when the restraint buckle opened unexpectedly.

“This recall involves ANTILOP high chairs sold in red, blue or white. The plastic high chair has detachable silver-colored metal legs. High chairs included in the recall have a manufacture date between 0607 and 0911 (YYMM format) from supplier number 17389. The production date and supplier number are molded into the underside of the seat. ‘ANTILOP,’ ‘IKEA’ and the model number are printed on a label affixed to the underside of the seat,” reported the CPSC.

The following high chairs are involved in this recall:

• ANTILOP high chair blue, red, and white

• Model #: 701.467.92, 501.467.93, 300.697.24

Consumers are advised to contact IKEA for a free replacement seat restraint.
