About 35,000 Safety 1st children's highchairs have been recalled. The company has received 11 reports of injuries and 68 reports of children removing the trays by themselves.
The recalled highchairs were sold at Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores and on their websites between May 2013 and May 2015. They were also sold online at Walmart.com and Amazon.com. The highchairs cost about $120 each. The highchairs are black with a detachable white tray.
Customers who have the chair should call the company immediately for a repair kit, and in the meantime should stop using the highchairs. The children who were injured suffered cuts, bruises, and chipped teeth.
Safety issues with children's products are common. Over the past decade, there have been many recalls involving cribs, highchairs, car seats, strollers, toys, and other children's products. Many of these products posed a choking risk, a risk of suffocation, a risk of falls, a risk of entrapment, and other serious dangers. In some cases, the companies knew about the issues for months or years, but failed to take any steps to correct the problem.
If a company fails to take the proper steps to make its products safe for customers, particularly children, the company can be held legally liable for injuries. Damages can include compensation for medical expenses, other out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
