RECALL: Fisher-Price 3-in-1 High Chairs Due to Fall Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Fisher Price, today announced a voluntary recall of about 24,000 3-in-1 High Chairs because the seat can fall backwards from high chair frame if the booster seat release is unlatched while the child is in the product.
Additionally, the seat back can detach if not fully snapped in place, posing a fall hazard and risk of serious injury to young children.
The firm has received one report of a seat back detaching and child falling out, resulting in a skull fracture.
This recall involves the 3-in-1 High Chair to Booster™, which 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.
Consumers should stop using the recalled high chairs immediately and contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 anytime or visit the firm’s Web site at www.service.mattel.com for instructions and a free repair kit.
