The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced a recall of nearly 7,000 IKEA MATVRÅ bib two-packs in blue/red due to a potential choking hazard. Representatives from IKEA did not immediately return Red Tricycle’s request for comment.
If you have this product, read on for more information on this important recall.
Recalled Product Description: MATVRÅ Bibs
The recall includes IKEA’s MATVRÅ bib two-packs in blue/red only. These bibs were sold in packs of two, with one blue bib and one red bib each. Both bibs have a snap at the back of the neck. The blue version has a green seam along the outside of the bib and white polka dots. The red version has a yellow seam and red polka dots. The polka dots are on the seam, not on the main body of the bib.
Why the Bibs Were Recalled
It’s possible for the snap on the bib to detach, posing a potential choking hazard. Even though IKEA has received two worldwide (not in the United States) reports of this happening, as of now there are no reported injuries.
How to Tell If Your IKEA Bib Was Recalled
This recall is only for the IKEA MATVRÅ bib two-pack in the blue and red colors. Look for the words MATVRA, IKEA and the IKEA logo printed on a white tag on the back of the bib for style identification. According to a recall notice from IKEA, “The MATVRÅ bibs with the fruit/vegetable pattern in green and yellow, are not included in this recall and are safe to continue to use, as they are of a different material and construction.”
What Parents Can Do
If you have the recalled bibs, do not use them. Return the bibs to an IKEA store for a refund. Customers with questions can contact IKEA at 888-966-4532 or visit the company’s website here.
