The furniture giant Ikea remembers the extension table "Glivarp" in the white color around the world. Extraction boards from the glass table can be released from the rails and fall, Ikea said on Tuesday.
Clients made the Swedish giant aware of the faulty construction. "Ikea's customer safety is one of Ikea's top priorities," said Cindy Andersen, business manager at Kitchen and Dining at Ikea Sweden. Ikea has therefore decided to recall the product as a precautionary measure. "
Almost 900 tables sold in Switzerland
Six clients were injured, three of whom had to consult a doctor, an Ikea spokeswoman told AFP news agency. It's all about tables sold after January 1, 2017 – about 45,560 around the world. Ikea takes it back without proof of purchase.
Switzerland is also affected by the recall. The product is available in two different sizes. In Switzerland, Ikea sold 754 of the largest and 138 of the smaller tables.
