Because small children in particular could choke on loose small parts, Ikea has decided to recall the Blavingad fishing game.
Munich – The last recall at Ikea was not long ago, so the furniture giant has to address its customers again.
In mid-January, Ikea recalled a mirror because of the risk of injury, now a toy for children is affected.
