IKEA: Like Design, Life is Cheap

It used to be that owning IKEA just meant enduring some Fight Club barbs. A new product recall threatens to take away your ability to even turn the catalogue pages (which you read just for the articles).

IKEA is being forced to recall the LYCKSELE Chair Bed and Sofa Bed. Fingers can become caught in the folding mechanism of the chair bed/sofa bed, posing a laceration and/or amputation hazard. One consumer has already lost a finger tip when operating the folding mechanism.
