As San Diego product liability attorneys, the recent string of child product
recalls involving high chairs concerns us. Most recently, Dorel Juvenile
Group announced the recall of 35,000 Safety 1st high chairs.
The recall specifically involves Safety 1st Wood Décor highchairs. They were sold at Babies R US and Toys R
Us retail stores nationwide and online at www.Amazon.com, www.BabiesRUs.com,
www.ToysRUs.com, and www.Walmart.com from May 2013 through May 2015 for
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission(CPSC), children
can remove the highchair’s tray, which poses a fall hazard. The
company has received 68 reports of children removing the trays including
11 reports of injuries, such as lacerations, chipped teeth and bruises.
The recall involves three models: HC144BZF (Casablanca), HC229CZF (Gentle
Lace) and HC229CYG (Black Lace). The model numbers can be found under
the highchair seat. These A-frame black wood highchairs have a removable
fabric, black and white print seat pad with a blue or pink border on the
top and bottom of the seat pad. The highchairs have a white plastic, detachable
tray with a cone-shaped center divider that fits between a child’s
legs. “Safety 1st” is printed on the front center of the tray.
Due to the serious risk of injury, parents and caregivers are advised to
immediately stop using these recalled highchairs and contact the firm
to receive instructions on receiving a new tray with labels.
If your child or someone you love has been seriously injured by a dangerous
or defective high chair, don’t hesitate to contact
