IKEA Recalls Dining Tables Due to Laceration Hazard

November 27, 2018 from the CPSC in conjuntion with Healty Canadians:

GLIVARP extendable dining tables have been recalled because the table’s glass extension leaf can detach and fall unexpectedly, posing a laceration hazard.
This recall involves IKEA GLIVARP extendable dining tables in white. The recalled tables have four steel legs and a glass table top with an extension that can be pulled out to the side. They measure about 29 inches tall by 49 inches long. The glass table top extension measures about 25 inches long. The supplier number (12003) is printed on a sticker on the underside of the table frame. “GLIVARP” and the IKEA logo are also printed on the sticker.
IKEA has received three reports of the table’s glass extension leaf detaching and falling unexpectedly, one of which included a minor injury where no medical attention was needed.
Sold Exclusively At IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com from February 2017 through October 2018 for about $300.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dining tables and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund or free replacement table.
