Trays May Come Loose
Around 35,000 Evenflo convertible high chairs have been voluntarily recalled by the CPSC and Evenflo due to a problem with the trays that attach to the high chair, which creates a fall hazard.
Product Description: This recall involves approximately 35,000 high chairs that convert from a high chair to a toddler-sized table and chair. The model number is located on a label on a lower part of the chair’s legs.
The three recalled models are:
- Dottie Lime with a model number of 29111259
- Dottie Rose with a model number of 29111271
