IKEA recalling water dispenser due to suffocation hazard for pets

(WTOL) - IKEA is recalling a brand of water dispenser due to a suffocation hazard to pets.

The company says they have received two reports concerning tragic accidents where a pet has suffocated after getting their head stuck in the LURVIG water dispenser.

The dispenser was sold in U.S. stores between October 2017 and June 2018 for the price of $7.99.

IKEA urges customers to stop using the water dispenser and return it to any IKEA store for a full refund.
