IKEA bicycle recalled nationwide due to ‘safety issues’

A bicycle sold by Swedish furniture giant IKEA is being recalled around the country due to safety issues with the drive belt.

IKEA alerted customers to the recall in a statement on their website.

“IKEA has been informed and advised by the component supplier to recall the SLADDA bicycle,” the recall notice reads.


“The drive belt can snap suddenly, which in turn can lead to falls.”

According to the furniture giant, there have been eleven reports of incidents involving the SLADDA bicycle, with two minor injuries.

Customers have been told to stop using the bicycle immediately and to return it to their nearest IKEA store for a full refund.

Proof of purchase/receipt is not required and accessories specifically designed to fit with SLADDA will also be refunded.
