Ikea Canada recalls water dispenser for pets due to suffocation hazard

IKEA has issued a national recall on the LURVIG water dispenser for pets. 

The company says there is a risk for dogs and cats getting their heads stuck in the dome of the water dispenser with possible suffocation as a result. 

IKEA is urging customers to stop using the water dispenser and return it for a refund. 

The company has received reports globally of two incidents where dogs got their heads stuck in the water dispenser's dome and suffocated. 

The product was sold in Canada from October 2017 to July 2018, while over 7,000 units have been sold in the country. 

There have been no reported incidents in Canada.
