"Children can fall on or against the pegs on the rear legs of the high chair resulting in injuries or lacerations." Unbelieveable - what are companies supposed to make products out of pillows? This is a stupid recall. Parents - watch your kids - if they fall - oh well - don't blame companies for making products that kids will get hurt on if they fall on it - duh!
These toys should be made to a higher standard in either the UK, USA, Austrialia or Canada or Germany thats the only way quality can be assured.
