Infants and toddlers spend a lot of time in their high chairs, so it’s
important that they are safe. With this in mind, we would like to share
an important recall involving high chairs manufactured by Nuna Baby Essentials
Inc. The defective products could pose a fall hazard to small children.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the recall
involves more than 5,000 ZAAZ high chairs. Due to a product defect, the
arm bar can bend or detach during use and allow the child to fall from the seat.
To date, Nuna has received 50 reports of the arm bar detaching, including
six reports of children falling from the high chair. In four incidents,
the children suffered injuries, including bruising and a cut on the forehead.
The defective high chairs were sold at Albee Baby, Giggle, Magic Bean,
Nordstrom and other specialty stores nationwide and online at www.nuna.eu
and www.wayfair.com from February 2013 through November 2015. They cost
between $250 and $300.
For parents who are concerned that they may own a recalled ZAZZ high chair,
the recall involves the following eight models: HC-07-004 (pewter), HC-07-005
(carbon), HC-07-006 (plum), HC-07-009 (almond), HC-08-004 (pewter), HC-08-005
(carbon), HC-08-006 (plum) and HC-08-009 (almond). The CPSC recall notice
states that “ZAAZ” and the model number are printed under
the high chair seat on a white sticker. The defective high chairs look
like a regular kitchen table chair and have removable trays, arm bars
footrests, seat pads and harnesses so that they can convert into toddler
chairs. “Nuna” is printed above the footrest of the unit.
Due to the serious fall hazard, the CPSC advises that consumers should
immediately stop using these recalled high chairs. They can then contact
Nuna to receive a free new arm bar and instructions on how to replace it.
If you or someone you care about has suffered serious harm due to a recalled
or otherwise defective high chair or other children’s product, you
may be entitled to compensation. To find out more, contact
