Jan 24, 2017

Ikea Singapore has issued a precautionary recall for its Mysingso beach chair, after it received five reports of the chair collapsing during use.

The reports received involved injuries to users' fingers which required medical attention.

The affected customers were from Finland, Germany, USA, Denmark and Australia.

In a statement, Ikea said that it was possible for users to re-assemble the chair incorrectly after removing the fabric seat for washing.

While no known incidents have been reported in Singapore, the Swedish company which sells ready-to-assemble furniture says it will be offering refunds to customers who bought the Mysingso beach chair before Jan 31 this year.
