More dangerous baby high-chairs have been recalled. March 28, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and BabyHomeUSA Inc. announced a voluntary recall of approximately 1,100 baby high-chairs, specifically the BabyHome "Eat model" high-chair. Due to the front opening between the tray and seat bottom of this high-chair, the baby could pass through and become entrapped at its neck, posing the risk of strangulation to the child.
This high-chair was sold in a variety of colors, including red, black, green, purple, navy, orange, and brown for $150 at children’s product stores throughout the country, including USA Baby, Magic Beans, and R.C. Willey, and by online stores, Amazon.com, Babiesrus.com and Diapers.com, from March 2012 through February 2013. The high-chair was manufactured in China for BabyHome S.A., of Sabadell, Spain and imported by BabyHome USA, Inc., of Chester, N.J.
The recalled high-chairs bear the model number BH2104 on a label on the back of the chair, and have a nylon seat and a metal frame, with a plastic tray. The chair is 36 inches tall and almost 24 inches wide. The "babyhome" logo appears on the high-chair’s seatback. The word, "babyhome" is also printed on one of the chair’s legs and the word, "eat" is printed on the other leg. The lot numbers of the recalled high-chairs are printed on a sticker affixed to the bottom of the high-chair’s foot rest. Affected lot numbers are: BH00301/01-2012, BH00303/07-2012, BH00304/09-2012 and BH00304/09-2012.
Consumers should stop using the chair for children immediately. Consumers may also contact the company to obtain a free "crotch restraint repair kit" by calling toll-free 1(888)758-5712 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday, or by visiting the company’s website, www.babyhome.es and clicking on the "Eat Recall" to obtain additional information about the recall.
