It seams the IKEA 'Antilop' highchairs are one of the most popular on the market because not only are they cheap, but also bright and functional. Sadly a number of them have been recalled due to safety issues with the seatbelt. If you own one of these highchairs, or have one at your parents place for when you visit, please take the time to see the recal information below, which was taken from the IKEA website on 29/04/2012:
IKEA kindly asks customers who have an ANTILOP high chair from supplier #17389 and production date 0607-0911 (YYMM), to immediately contact Customer Services.
IKEA has received reports that the high chair belt can open unexpectedly, creating a fall hazard.
Customers with an ANTILOP high chair are asked to check the supplier number and production number moulded into the underside of the seat.
If the supplier number is #17389 and the production date is in the range 0607-0911 (YYMM) please visit the Exchange & Returns department in store or contact IKEA Customer Services on the numbers listed below to receive a replacement belt, free of charge.
No other high chairs are affected.
IKEA apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
