The manufacturer of children’s equipment, Evenflo has issued a recall of a line of convertible high chairs due to the risk of tots falling from them following a number of accidents.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, along with Evenflo, has issued a recall on certain convertible high chairs, due to the falling, WRIC.com reported.
Evenflo, also produces pacifiers, bottles for babies and child car seats. The company warns the activity and feeding tray on the “Dottie Lime” (29111259), “Dottie Rose” (29111271), and “Marianna” (29111234) convertible high chairs can detach from the chair, allowing a child who is not restrained to tumble.
“Model numbers are located on a label on the lower portion of one of the high chair’s leg. Consumers who bought the chairs are urged to stop using them immediately,” WRIC reported.
As experienced Chesapeake, VA defective products attorneys, we are concerned that thousands of children could be at risk from these chairs.
There are about 35,000 of these chairs in the United States. Evenflo says it has noted 18 cases of the chairs’ trays detaching. At least 8 children were injured.
The extent of these injuries are unclear, but we know a fall from a high chair can be very serious for a baby.
These chairs were made in China, and sold in a number of major stores including Wal-Mart and Toys ‘R’ Us Stores (as well as on walmart.com and wayfair.com) from December 2011 to June 2012, retailing for about $40.

This is not the first time in recent months that a Chinese made piece of equipment for children that was being sold in Wal-Mart has been recalled. In May, 2012, Wal-Mart announced the recall of 92,000 trampolines that represented a fall risk.
