Ikea Canada is recalling a water dispenser for pets due to a risk of suffocation.

The company made the move after receiving reports that two dogs got their heads stuck in the dispenser’s dome and suffocated.

The company says it has sold 7,767 LURVIG water dispensers in Canada from October 2017 to July 2018, but there were no reported incidents in this country.

It is urging customers to stop using the water dispenser and return it to an Ikea store for a full refund.
