Earlier this month, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of approximately 35,000 Decor Wood Highchairs that were manufactured in China and imported by Dorel Juvenile Group.
Retailers that sold the recalled products include:
— Toys R Us
— Babies R US
The units sold for around $120 and were purchased during the two-year period from May 2013 to May 2015.
The reason for the recall is that the tray of the highchair can be removed by a child, presenting a fall hazard.
There are three models involved in the recall:
— HC229CYG (Black Lace)
— HC144BZF (Casablanca)
— HC229CZF (Gentle Lace)
The model numbers are stamped beneath the seat of the highchairs. The black A-frame wood highchairs come with removable fabric, a white and black print pad for the seat with pink or blue borders on both the tops and bottoms of the pads.
The tray for the highchairs is detachable white plastic. There is also a cone-shaped divider in the center that goes between a toddler’s legs. On the center front portion of the tray, “Safety 1st” is stamped.
There have been at least 68 reports of kids removing their trays. Eleven of the reports involved injuries like bruises, chipped teeth and lacerations.
Affected consumers should stop using the recalled chairs immediately. They can contact the Safety 1st company to learn how to obtain another tray.
If you or your child was injured by a product that was recalled, and if you wish to recover any associated medical expenses, you may wish to consult with an attorney who handles product liability cases.
