Most California residents would agree that product defects are alarming. Such flawed products always serve as a risk to our health and safety. However, the general public is usually more concerned when they discover a defect among a product that is intended for children. In recent news, a common child's product has been recalled due to serious safety concerns.
The federal government recently issued a recall of popular high chair. According to reports, Evenflo's convertible high chair tray can detach unexpectedly. This dangerous product is allowing children to fall out of their chairs, thus causing some injuries.
About 35,000 of the chairs were sold from December until the recall at Toys "R" Us and Walmart stores. Furthermore, the chairs were also sold through Wayfair.com and Walmart.com.
These specific high chairs convert from a high chair to a toddler-size table and chair.
Sources indicate that there have been 18 reports of the tray becoming detached and eight reports of children falling from the high chair. Most of the reported injuries have been limited to bumps and bruises.
Even so, parents should immediately stop using the high chair and contact Evenflo for a replacement. In fact, if you bought one of the defective chairs, you can order a free replacement from the company.
The defective chair models have the following model numbers located on the label of the chair's leg: 29111259, 29111271 and 29111234.
Fortunately, the Consumer Product Safety Commission is continuing to investigate this product liability matter and is asking consumers to share any information or concerns.
