Evenflo Recalls More High Chairs

Apr 2, 2009 | Parker Waichman LLP

Evenflo is recalling more defective high chairs today for choking and fall hazards.  One recall, involving 90,000 Majestic High Chairs, is actually an expansion of a recall Evenflo issued last December.  The second recall involves more than 640,000 Envision High Chairs.  Both models have injured children.

Evenflo is urging consumers with either of the recalled high chairs to stop using them immediately and contact the company at (800) 233-5921 to receive a free repair kit.

The  Majestic High Chair recall was expanded because plastic caps and metal screws on both sides of the high chair can loosen and fall out, allowing the seatback to suddenly fall back or detach from the high chair. Children can fall backwards or fall out of the high chair and suffer bumps and bruises to the head, broken bones, abrasions, cuts and bruises. Detached hardware also poses a choking hazard to children.

The expanded recall involves Evenflo Majestic high chairs, model numbers: 3001395, 3001395A, 3001604, 3001700, 3001713, 3001713A, 3001730A, 3001732, 3001733, 3001742, 3001742A, 3001756, 3001821A, 3001840A, 3001845, 30011848, 3001852, 3001932, 3002719 and 3003845 manufactured between January 23, 2007 and December 31, 2008. The model number and date of manufacture are located on a white label/sticker on the seatback. “Evenflo” is printed on the label and on the front of the tray. Models showing a year of manufacture of 2009 in red ink are not included in the recall.

Last December, Evenflo recalled 95,000 Majestic High Chairs after receiving 140 reports of seatbacks reclining, falling back and/or detaching unexpectedly, which resulted in at least 47 reports of bumps and bruises to the head, two reports of broken bones, and at least 45 reports of other injuries including abrasions, cuts, and bruises. Evenflo also received more than 1,000 reports of plastic caps and screws falling out of the high chairs, including seven incidents in which caps and screws were found in children’s hands or mouths but were removed before choking occurred.

For the models added by this expanded recall, Evenflo said it  has received 16  more reports of seatbacks reclining, falling back and/or detaching unexpectedly, resulting in five reports of bumps and bruises to the head and five reports of other injuries including bruises and abrasions. In addition, the models included in the expanded recall have been associated with 145 additional reports of plastic caps and screws falling out of the high chairs, including one incident in which a cap and/or screws were found in a child’s hand or mouth but were removed before choking occurred.

The recalled Evenflo Majestic High Chairs were sold at juvenile product and mass merchandise stores nationwide, including Toys“R”Us, Babies“R”Us, Walmart.com, and Burlington Coat Factory from January 2007 through March 2009 for between $80 and $110.

Evenflo's recall of Envision High Chairs was issued because recline fasteners and metal screws on both sides of the high chair can loosen and fall out, allowing the seatback to detach or recline unexpectedly. Children can fall backwards or fall out of the high chair and suffer bumps and bruises to the head, abrasions, cuts and bruises. Detached hardware on the Envision High Chair also poses a choking hazard to children.

Evenflo has received 320 reports of seatbacks detaching or reclining unexpectedly, resulting in 19 reports of bumps and bruises to the head and 35 reports of other injuries including abrasions, pinches and bruises. Evenflo has also received 13 reports of recline fasteners and screws falling out of the high chair, resulting in one incident in which a fastener and/or screws were found in a child’s hand or mouth but were removed before choking occurred.

The recall involves all Evenflo Envision high chairs, including model numbers: 2891321, 2891321A, 2891333, 2891351, 2891351A, 2891365, 2891375, 2891403, 2891403A, 2891466, 2891466A, 2891478, 2891536, 2891536A, 2891573, 2891586, 2892351 and 2892351A. The model number can be found on a white label on the seatback. “Evenflo” and “Envision” are printed on the front of the tray.

The recalled Envision High Chairs were also sold at juvenile product and mass merchandise stores nationwide, including Toys“R”Us, Babies“R”Us, K-Mart and Burlington Coat Factory from December 2002 through April 2006 for between $80 and $110.
