WASHINGTON (CNN) — Reports of children falling from a popular high chair prompted the federal government to issue a recall Tuesday. Officials say Evenflo’s convertible high chair tray can detach unexpectedly, causing kids to fall out.
The recall involves Evenflo high chairs that convert from high chair to toddler-size table and chair, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
There have been 18 reports of the tray becoming detached and eight reports of children falling from the high chair, the commission said. Although there haven’t been any reports of serious injury, some children have gotten bumps and bruises.
Parents are being told to immediately stop using the high chair and contact Evenflo for a replacement tray.
People who have one of the recalled high chairs can visit http://www.safety.evenflo.com for information on how to order a free replacement tray.
It was manufactured in China, and the model numbers include 29111259, 29111271 and 29111234. Consumers can find the model number on the label of the high chair’s leg.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission is continuing to investigate and is asking consumers to share dangers they’ve encountered at SaferProducts.gov.
