Recall: Fisher-Price 3-in-1 High Chairs Due to Fall Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Fisher Price, today announced a voluntary recall of the Fisher-Price 3-in-1 High Chairs. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

This recall involves the 3-in-1 High Chair to Booster™, which converts from a high chair to a toddler booster seat. It includes a removable tray, height adjustment and folds for storage. The product number (P5369) is printed on the side of the seat, on a label on the seat pad, and on the product’s packaging.

About 24,000 Fisher-Price 3-in-1 High Chairs have been recalled because the seat can fall backwards from the high chair frame if the booster seat release is unlatched while the child is in the product. Also, the seat back can detach if not fully snapped in place, posing a fall hazard and risk of serious injury to young children.

The firm has received one report of a seat back detaching and child falling out, resulting in a skull fracture.

These high chairs were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide from December 2008 through March 2009 for about $100.

Consumers should stop using the recalled high chairs immediately and contact Fisher-Price for instructions and a free repair kit. For additional information, contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 anytime or visit the firm’s Web site at www.service.mattel.com
