Attention parents! If you’ve purchased a Safety 1st Wood Décor highchair, you need to read this post! Safety 1st recalled 35,000 Wood Décor highchairs due to fall risks. The recalled highchairs are in the Wood Décor line and include the Casablanca (#HC144BZF), Gentle Lace (#HC229CZF) and Black Lace (#HC229CYG) models. The model numbers can be found printed under the highchair seat.
They are A-frame black wood highchairs with removable black and white fabric seat pads. The seat pads have blue or pink borders on the top and bottom. The highchairs come with a detachable white plastic tray that has a cone-shaped divider, which fits between your child’s legs. The company name, “Safety 1st”, is printed on the front center of the tray.
If you have one of these models, you should stop using it immediately and contact the company for instructions on getting a replacement tray.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that the recall is due to 68 reports of kids removing the trays, thus increasing the risk of falling. Eleven falls occurred resulting in a variety of injuries including chipped teeth, bruises and lacerations.
