Dream On Me Recalls High Chairs Due to Strangulation Hazard

Published on Oct 23, 2012 at 2:03 pm in Consumer Awareness.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Bistro high chairs

Units: About 90

Importer: Dream On Me Inc., of South Plainfield, N.J.

Hazard: 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. This 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.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: This recall involves all Bistro high chairs with model/style number “255” which is printed on a tag attached to the back of the seat. The high chair was sold in blue or pink. The fabric on the seat has a polka-dot design and “Dream On Me” is printed on a label attached to the front of the white tray. The recalled high chair was manufactured in July 2011 and has a date code printed on a label on the back of the chair.

Sold at: Americas Kids, Kid Pro USA and independent juvenile specialty stores and online at Toysrus.com between November 2011 and September 2012 for about $75.
