Safety 1st Recalls High Chairs

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 about $120.

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 the Law Offices of Robert Vaage for a free consultation.
