Skip Hop has announced a recall of 2 styles of its Tuo Convertible High Chair, following multiple reports of the chairs’ legs becoming detached and falling.
To date, the company says, it knows of 13 instances in which that very thing has happened. In 2 of the cases, the children using the chairs suffered bruises.
Health Canada estimates that around 2,000 of the recalled high chairs were sold there, with no Canadian reports of any accidents. All of the known leg failures, and both injuries, occurred in the U.S., where the Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that around 7,900 units may be in use.
The chairs were also sold in Mexico and Australia.
New, these chairs cost around $160 (US) and were sold at specialty stores and department stores like:
- Babies ”R” Us
- Best Buy Baby
