You want to keep your baby safe, but the products you use to take care of her may actually be putting her in danger. On March 28, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and BabyHomeUSA Inc. announced a recall of approximately 1,100 BabyHome "Eat model" high-chairs due to a potentially deadly manufacturer’s flaw.
The highchair is being recalled because a design defect could put your baby at risk of death or serious injury. The front opening between the chair’s tray and seat bottom is large enough for your baby to pass through and become entrapped at the neck, posing a risk of strangulation to the child.
The recalled high-chair was sold in red, black, green, purple, navy, orange, and brown for $150 at children’s stores across the country and online at Amazon.com, Babiesrus.com and Diapers.com between March 2012 and February 2013. The high-chair was manufactured in China, making it just the latest dangerous Chinese-made product to make its way into American consumers’ homes.
If you own this chair, the CPSC wants you to stop putting your baby in it immediately. You can also contact the company to get a free "crotch restraint repair kit" by calling 1(888)758-5712 or by visiting www.babyhome.es and clicking on the "Eat Recall."
