IKEA Recalls Folding Chairs That Pose Amputation Hazard

At Breslin and Breslin, our products liability lawyers are reporting that Ikea is recalling more than 33,000 of its folding MYSINGSO beach chairs. The Swedish company said the chairs can collapse, fall and may pose finger amputation hazards.

The chairs have a wood base and have an attached polyester fabric seat, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Ikea has two stores in New Jersey in Paramus and Elizabeth.

The full list of article numbers, located on the wooden frame and sewn into the fabric can be found at the United States Consumer Safety Commission website.

Ikea said 13 incidents worldwide have been recorded to date, including 10 reports of injuries - 6 of which resulted in finger amputations.

Anyone who bought one of these chairs before February 2017 should return it for a full refund. A proof of purchase is not required, Ikea said.
