Ikea Recall Due To Injury Risk

Ikea have today issued a recall on a children's cape due to risk of strangulations and injuries. The LATTJO Bat Cape has been recalled after reports of children receiving marks and scratches to their necks. If you have one you should stop it being used immediately and return it to stores for a full refund.

You can read the recall notice on the Ikea website here, and the full notice follows below.

IKEA urges customers who have a LATTJO bat cape to immediately stop children from playing with it and to bring it back to any IKEA store for a full refund.

IKEA is recalling LATTJO bat capes after reports about three children that have received marks and scratches on the neck while using LATTJO bat capes. The cape got stuck and didn't detach easily enough from the children's necks.

No injuries which required medical treatment have been reported, but due to the risk of strangulation or injuries to the neck, IKEA takes precautionary measures and recalls the product.

LATTJO bat capes have been sold in all IKEA markets except Russia and Indonesia since November 2015.

The LATTJO bat cape can be returned to any IKEA store for a full refund. Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required. For more information, please contact IKEA on 0203 645 0010.

IKEA apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
