IKEA recalls high chairs due to fall risk

IKEA is recalling 169,000 high chairs following reports that the product's restraint buckle can open unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard to children.

The recall includes red, blue or white Antilop high chair that were sold between August 2006 and January for about $20.

IKEA has received eight reports worldwide of restraint buckles that opened unexpectedly, including three reports of children who received minor injuries after falling from the high chair.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the high chairs and contact IKEA to obtain a free replacement seat restraint.
