    Ikea has recalled a child’s bat cape costume over strangulation fears.

    The Swedish superstore is advising customers who have a LATTJO Bat Cape to immediately stop children using it and take it back into any Ikea store for a full refund.

    The recall has been put in place after reports of three children receiving marks and stratches from the costume.

    Ikea has confirmed that although the injuries suffered did not require medical attention, there could be a risk of strangulation or neck injuries so has put the recall in place as a precautionary measure.

    The Bat Cape has been on sale in all Ikea markets except Russia and Indonesia since November 2015.

    Here are the full recall instructions from Ikea:

    The LATTJO bat cape can be returned to any IKEA store for a full refund.

    Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required.

    For more information, please contact IKEA on 0203 645 0010.
