According to an article published by Click2Houston.com, reports of children falling from a popular high chair prompted the federal government to issue a recent recall. In the article it stated that Evenflo’s convertible high chair tray can detach unexpectedly, causing kids to fall out.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recall involves Evenflo high chairs that convert from a high chair to toddler-size table and chair.
As per the Commission, there have been eighteen reports of the tray becoming detached and eight reports of children falling from the high chair. There have yet to be any reports of serious injury to any of the children involved.
Parents are advised to stop using the high chair and contact Evenflo for a replacement tray. People who have one of the recalled high chairs can visit www.safety.evenflo.com for information on how to order a free replacement tray.
The highchair was manufactured in China, and the model numbers include 29111259, 29111271 and 29111234. About 35,000 of the chairs were sold from December until the recall at Toys “R” Us and Walmarts nationwide. The chairs were also sold through Wayfair.com and Walmart.com.
