Product Liability: Evenflo High Chair
Evenflo Company Inc. of Miamisburg, Ohio, has issued an expanded recall for Evenflo Majestic™ high chairs manufactured between January 2007 and December 2008. More than 600,000 of these chairs were sold in popular retail stores like Target and Wal-Mart.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, plastic caps and metal screws on both sides of the high chair have become loose and fallen out, causing the chair to recline backwards suddenly without warning. There are numerous reports of children who suffered head injuries, bruises and abrasions after falling backwards out of these chairs. The CPSC also says the small plastic caps and metal screws represent a choking hazard for small children.
The recalled chairs include model numbers: 2891321, 2891321A, 2891333, 2891351, 2891351A, 2891365, 2891375, 2891403, 2891403A, 2891466, 2891466A, 2891478, 2891536, 2891536A, 2891573, 2891586, 2892351, 2892351A 3001395, 3001395A, 3001604, 3001700, 3001713, 3001713A, 3001730A, 3001732, 3001733, 3001742, 3001742A, 3001756, 3001821A, 3001840A, 3001845, 30011848, 3001852, 3001932, 3002719 and 3003845.
The model number and manufacturing date are located on a white label/sticker on the seatback. “Evenflo” is printed both on the label and the front of the tray. Models showing a 2009 manufacturing date in red ink are not included in the recall.
