Ikea is recalling the MYSINGSÖ beach chair sold in the UK following reports of it collapsing and causing injury.

IKEA urges customers to return this item for a full refund as part of the global recall. Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required for a full refund.

[https://i.guim.co.uk/img/media/550f90b32b67e1a2d08ff19213e045d33c7896b7/73_141_3094_1856/master/3094.jpg?w=620&q=55&auto=format&usm=12&fit=max&s=49c4507bd17292c0918cbd0fa13710b0

After washing the fabric seat it is possible to re-assemble the chair incorrectly leading to risks of falls or finger entrapments. IKEA has received five incident reports in which MYSINGSÖ beach chair collapsed during use due to incorrect re-assembly.

All five reports included injuries to fingers and required medical attention. The reported injuries happened in Finland, Germany, USA, Denmark and Australia.


It seems the problem isn't enitrely IKEAs fault as the chairs had been re-assembed incorrectly after washing., however they do have a resposibility in the design and clear instructions after the fabric has been washed.

Shock horror, deck chairs can injure you if you're not careful. Apparently scissors, chain saws and garden shears can also give you a nasty nip if you stick your fingers in between the blades.

Good grief!

I can only imagine the horror of someone hurting themselves by falling off a chair from a few feet up!
Luckily, they shouldn't need to be hospitalized

Right, we better ban all the doors in the world because of possible finger entrapment.
