The well-known children’s manufacturer, Skip Hop, has recalled 10,000 of their convertible high chairs.
The recall has been issued due to a potential fall hazard. The high chair’s front legs can fall off, causing a child to fall. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has reported that Skip Hop has received 13 reports of the legs detaching from the high chair. Two bruising injuries have been reported at this time.
How to know if your high chair has been recalled
The recalled high chair is Skip Hop’s charcoal colored Tuo Convertible High Chair. The high chairs were sold at Babies R Us, Target, Buy Buy Baby and more stores from December 2016-September 2017 and retailed for $160.00.
The model numbers are 304200 and 304200CN with a date code found on the back of the chair of: HH102016, HH11/2016, HH3/2017 and HH4/2017.
