The Ikea glivarp frosted white extendable table has sides that can be pulled out and locked into place to create a larger tabletop. But in a release, Health Canada explained the extension can detach and collapse.

The company hasn’t received any reports of injuries or collapses in Canada, but there have been three reported collapses in the U.S. and one minor injury.

About 1,500 affected products were sold in Canada and 5,200 were sold south of the border.
