TOMY Issues Recall On Over 85,000 Of Their Highchairs
The recalled highchairs were sold in-person and on-line through retailers like Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, Toys'R'Us, Amazon and Walmart.
Over 85,000 highchairs have been recalled nationally due to a fall hazard that has resulted in several injuries.
Toy and Nursey product company ‘TOMY International Inc.’ issued the recall on its ‘Boon Flair and Flair Elite Highchairs’. The bolts securing the seats can loosen allowing the seats to detach.
TOMY has received 34 reports to date of their chair separating from the base. This has led to two dozen falls that resulted in 11 injuries.
The recalled highchairs were sold in-person and on-line through retailers like Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, Toys’R’Us, Amazon and Walmart. The ‘Flair’ seats were sold from 2008 to 2009 while the ‘Flair Elite’ models were distributed from 2008 to 2017.
Those who have the chairs are advised to stop using them immediately. TOMY noted there is no need for consumers to return the chair, instead, impacted customers are urged to contact the company for a free repair kit which includes a set of bolts and split and flat washers to repair the chairs.
