IKEA recalls 11,000 bat cape costumes that may strangle children

Posted on April 8, 2016 9:33 am under Defective Child Care Products

Multinational retailer IKEA is recalling 11,000 units of bat cape costumes for children in the U.S. and Canada due to strangulation risks, a cpsc.gov article reported on April 7.

According to the recall, the “Children’s LATTJO Bat Cape Costumes,” exclusively sold at IKEA, have a faulty fabric hook and loop to fasten the bat cape, posing a strangulation risk. IKEA has been notified of at least three incidents outside of the U.S. of these capes causing scratching injuries to children’s necks. The affected bat cape costumes, made of polyester, come in black with gray stripes and were made in China from November of last year until February of this year. IKEA has advised consumers to immediately suspend use of these bat capes and return them for a full refund.
