Recalled highchairs (CPSC)

Nearly 85,000 highchairs have been recalled after two dozen reports of children falling from the chair.

The recall involves TOMY’s Boon Flair highchairs manufactured before September 2016 and all Boon Flair Elite highchairs. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the bolts used to secure the seat of the recalled highchair to the pedestal base can become loose and allow the seat to detach, posing a fall hazard.

TOMY has received 34 reports of the chair separating from the base, including 24 falls resulting in 11 injuries such as bruising or scratches.

The CPSC says to stop using the recalled highchairs and contact TOMY for a free repair kit – a set of bolts and split and flat washers to repair the recalled highchair.
