Highchairs Recalled Due to Fall Hazard
NEW YORK (AP) - About 35,000 Safety 1st highchairs are being recalled following reports that children were able to remove the tray and fall off causing chipped teeth, cuts and bruises.
Safety 1st said Thursday that it received 11 reports of injuries and 68 reports of children removing the trays. The recall is for three types of Safety 1st highchairs with model numbers HC144BZF, HC229CZF and HC229CYG.
The highchairs were sold at Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores and its websites between May 2013 and May 2015. They were also sold online at Amazon.com and Walmart.com. The highchairs cost about $120. The wooden highchairs are black and have a black and white printed seat pad with either a blue or pink border. The detachable plastic tray is white.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said customers should stop using the recalled highchairs and call Safety 1st at 877-717-7823 to receive a free repair kit.
Safety 1st highchairs are made by Montreal-based Dorel Industries Inc., which also makes home furniture, bicycles and child car seats.
