Here at Scoopla, we are absolutely loving summer thus far!

Despite the scorcher days we have had, we’ve been blessed with stellar swells at our beautiful beaches, and the sun has made for some epic days out with our mates.

We're sure you've all enjoyed doing the same thing, especially when it's just lounging around doing nothing but relaxing on a good ol' beach chair.

The thing is, one of your trusty beach chairs has just been RECALLED due to some pretty nasty injuries, and you're going to want to pay attention if you value your digits. 

Furniture empire, IKEA, has just announced a recall on over 30,000 of it's iconic beach chairs due to safety concerns. 

The Mysingsö model chairs have accumulated 13 complaints so far of injuries, with 6 people having had their fingers amputated as a result of using the chair. 

The chairs sold from February 2013 until December of 2016, so if you've had one for a while or just received it as a Christmas gift, then you might want to reconsider the purchase. 

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission released a statement saying, "Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chairs and return them to any IKEA store for a free replacement or refund," with no receipt or proof of purchase required. 

The company also explained that, "It is possible to assemble the chair incorrectly leading to risks of falls or finger entrapments."

The recall has also been initiated in Australia, along with Germany, Canada and the USA. 

However, it is still being sold in Saudi Arabia... For what reason, we are unsure. 

Looks like we need a new beach chair...
