Evenflo has recalled 35,000 of its convertible high chairs sold at Toys "R" Us and Walmart, because the chair's activity tray can unexpectedly detach and allow an unrestrained child to fall, posing a risk of injury.
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, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The recall includes high chairs that convert to a toddler-size table and chair, pictured below. The high chairs were sold for about $40 between December 2011 and June 2012 at Toys "R" Us and Walmart stores nationwide, and online at Walmart.com and Wayfair.com.
The convertible high chair model numbers can be found on a label on the lower portion of one of the high chair's legs.
Model name and numbers include the following:
- Dottie Lime, 29111259
- Dottie Rose, 29111271
- Marianna, 29111234
If you're in possession of one of the recalled high chairs, you should contact Evenflo for a replacement tray with installation and use instructions by calling 800-233-5921 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or by visiting http://safety.evenflo.com.
