Alert: High chair recall

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the voluntary recall of about 90 Bistro high chairs.

The company that makes the high chair is “Dream On Me Inc.”, of South Plainfield, N.J. Officials say the front openings between the tray and seat bottom and on the side openings of the high chair between the armrest and seat bottom can allow a child’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck. They say it poses a strangulation hazard to young children if the belt is not engaged.

In addition, exposed springs between the seat and armrest on both sides of the high chair can create a pinch hazard to the child.

No injuries have been reported.
