Ikea issues warning over change table following reports of accidents
The Swedish furniture brand revealed that in the cases where there have been accidents, the safety-locking feature on the furniture was not installed.
The foldable part is intended to be used in a fixed position as either a changing table or a storage chest and not as an everyday multi-function product. The safety locks must be used at all times.
“Ikea has received three reports of incidents where the foldable part has come loose and children have fallen off the changing table,” says the ACCC.
“In these incidents the safety locking fittings were not used according to the assembly instructions.
“The folding part should be locked in place the whole time that the product is used as a change table.
“When the child is past the nappy stage the product may be locked in place as a chest of drawers.”
