3-in-1 High Chair Recall by Fisher-Price
On Thursday, March 26, 2009, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Fisher-Price, announced a voluntary recall of the 3-in-1 high chair. If you have one, you should stop using it immediately.
Approximately 24,000 of the 3-in-1 high chairs were sold exclusively at Target stores from December 2008 through March 2009 for about $100. The 3-in-1 high chair converts from a high chair to a toddler booster seat. It includes a removable tray, height adjustment and folds for storage. The product number (P5369) is printed on the side of the seat, on a label on the seat pad, and on the product’s packaging.
It has been reported that at least one child has fallen out of the chair when the seat back detached. The fall resulted in a skull fracture. The problem is that when the seat is used as a high chair, it can fall backwards in the frame if the booster seat release is unlatched. Also, the seat back can detach if not fully snapped in place, posing a fall hazard and risk of serious injury to young children.
If you have one of these chairs, stop using it immediately and contact Fisher-Price for instructions and a free repair kit. You can contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 anytime or visit the firm’s Web site at www.service.mattel.com
