What Item Has Been Recalled?
We use and consume products that we have purchased every day. When we use these products, we expect them to be safe for our use. Unfortunately, that is not always the case and sometimes the products we buy pose potential hazards for our health or safety. When this happens, it is common for the producer of the product to issue a recall to warn consumers about the potential hazards associated with the product. One of the latest companies to issue a recall for some of their products is IKEA.
IKEA has issued a recall for thousands of their infant bibs. The recall comes after concerns that the snaps on the back of the bibs could pose a potential choking hazard if they become detached from the bib. The bibs included in the recall are called MATVRA infant bibs. They were sold as a pair in a pack both in the stores and on IKEA’s website. Each of the packs of bibs contained a red bib and a blue bib. The bibs also had IKEA’s logo printed on a white tag on the back.
The company has stated that it has received two reports of the snaps on the bibs becoming detached. Neither of these reported incidents occurred in the United States. The company also states that no injuries have been reported in relation to the bibs.
According to the National Safety Council, choking is one of the leading causes of unintentional deaths for infants. Because of the high risks associating with something that poses a choking hazard, the company has urged consumers to stop using the bibs. Owners of the bibs can return them to any IKEA store to receive a full refund.
