I have already notified IKEA about an accident I had with one of its Antilop high chairs with tray.

When feeding my son yesterday, I rested my elbows on the tray attached to my IKEA Antilop high chair, and the tray popped off hitting me violently in the face and slicing my nose by the small pointed (and very sharp) piece that hooks the tray into the high chair itself. I do know that there was already a recall on these high chairs for an unrelated issue, and I am appalled to learn the hard way of this newest safety concern. I am so very thankful that my child was not injured -- it could have been a grave injury to someone so little, including a very serious eye injury that could have blinded him based on where it hit me.
This is a serious matter, that I sincerely hope will get the attention it deserves before a child is maimed, or worse.

I still have it for evidence; although I won't ever feel safe using it again. I emailed IKEA already with a detailed explanation and the same photos.
