The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Evenflo Inc. of Miamisburg, Ohio, today announced a voluntary recall about 35,000 convertible high chairs because of a fall hazard.
The activity tray on the high chair can unexpectedly detach and allow an unrestrained child to fall, posing a risk of injury to the child. Evenflo has received 18 reports of trays that detached, including eight reports of children who fell from the high chair and sustained bumps and bruises.
The recall involves Evenflo high chairs that convert from a high chair to toddler-size table and chair. The convertible high chair can be identified by the model names and numbers listed below. Model numbers are located on a label on the lower portion of one of the high chair's legs: Dottie Lime 29111259, Dottie Rose 29111271, Marianna 29111234.
The chairs, manufactured in China, were sold betwween December 2011 and June at Toys "R" Us and Wal-Mart stores nationwide and online for about $40.
Consumers with the recalled highchairs may contact Evenflo for a replacement tray with installation and use instructions. Evenflo can be reached at 800-233-5921 between 8 a.m. through 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or on the web at safety.evenflo.com.
