IKEA has issued a recall over children’s bibs due to a possible choking hazard.

The company issued the recall on Tuesday saying the “MATVRA” children’s bib, Blue/Red two-pack has a button which may detach and pose a choking hazard to children.

The two bibs are described as blue with a green trim and red with a yellow trim, each with a single button closure on the back on the neck. The article number is 504 269 20.

The products were sold from August to September of this year.

IKEA said that as of Sept. 27, there have been no reports of detaching buttons. Just under 2,000 units of the recalled bibs were sold in Canada.

The company is asking customers to stop using the recalled bibs immediately and to return the product to the company to get a replacement bib or a full refund.

IKEA said the same “MATVRA” style of bib sold in the fruit and vegetable pattern (green/yellow) do not have the same hazard and are not included in the recall.
