BabyHome USA Recalls 1,100 High Chairs Due To Strangulation Hazard
The CPSC and BabyHome USA have issued a recall for approximately 1,100 BabyHome USA high chairs due to a strangulation hazard. The front opening between the tray and seat bottom of the high chair can allow a child’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck. This poses a strangulation hazard to young children when the child is not harnessed.
This recall includes Eat model high chairs in red, black, green, purple, navy, orange, and brown. The model number BH2104 is located on a label on the back of the high chair. The word “babyhome” is printed on one leg of the chair and the word “eat” is printed on the opposite leg of the chair. The high chairs have a nylon fabric seat with a plastic tray and metal frame. The high chairs measure about 36 inches high and 24 inches wide. There is a printed white “babyhome” logo shaped like a backwards letter “h” on the seatback. The recalled high chairs have lot numbers: BH00301/01-2012, BH00303/07-2012, BH00304/09-2012 and BH00304/09-2012. The lot numbers are located on a sticker affixed to the bottom of the footrest.
The chairs were sold in juvenile product stores nationwide including USA Baby, Magic Beans and RC Willey and online at Amazon.com, Babiesrus.com and Diapers.com from March 2012 through February 2013 for about $150.
Consumers should stop using the high chairs immediately and contact BabyHome USA to receive a free crotch restraint repair kit. BabyHome USA Inc. toll-free at (888) 758-5712 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or online at www.babyhome.es and click on “Eat Recall” for more information.
