Swedish IKEA (Ikea) announced yesterday that it had removed around 45,000 folding tables sold worldwide because there is a risk that their spreader will fall, the French printer reported.
"The appeal concerns only Glavarp white matter sold after January 1, 2017," IKEA said in a statement.
The report comes after approximately 50 alerts from users who have been alerted to disconnect and drop the mass extension board. Six people were injured and three of them needed "medical care", a spokesman for Therese Fagertstet told the French press.
45,563 pieces of Glavarp weight have been sold around the world since January 2017 – at a price of 249 euros (199 euros for the smallest model). Glivepar owners are encouraged to return them to business to be compensated.
