MONTREAL -- Safety 1st Wood Decor highchairs, imported from China by a division of Montreal-based Dorel Industries, are being recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for a safety violation.

The A-frame black wood highchairs have a removable fabric, black and white print seat pad with a blue or pink border on the top and bottom of the seat pad. The highchairs have a white plastic, detachable tray with a cone-shaped center divider that fits between a child’s legs. “Safety 1st” is printed on the front center of the tray.

According to CPSC, Safety 1st received 68 reports of children removing the trays (which poses a fall hazard) as well as 11 reports of injuries such as lacerations, chipped teeth and bruises.

The recall involves approximately 35,000 chairs that were sold nationwide at Babies R US and Toys R Us retail stores and on their online sites as well as on Amazon.com and Walmart.com from May 2013 through May 2015. The three models being recalled are: HC144BZF (Casablanca), HC229CZF (Gentle Lace) and HC229CYG (Black Lace). The model numbers are printed under the highchair seat.
