High Chairs Distributed During Ellen DeGeneres Show Recalled

Post On 02-06-2015

According to a series of news reports, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has indicated that Mima Moon high chairs are being recalled.

The devices have three different uses in one. According to the official announcement, the high chair comes with seats that could become loose suddenly, causing them to become dislodged. This issue could allow the child to fall unexpectedly, which could expose he or she to serious personal injuries.

These consumer products impacted by this particular campaign could also expose consumers by falling on the child if he or she is crawling underneath the seat. To prevent accidents that could expose the child to impact or falling, parents are urged to stop using the 3-in-1 high chair.

The company behind this recall has indicated that at least 14 incidents involving the high chairs have been reported so far. The 1,470 units manufactured by Sparklegate Industries can be identified by a “Mima” logo. A full list of the model numbers impacted can be found on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The chairs are designed to offer adjustments to meet the needs of the baby through his or her many stages. The chair can be adjusted to meet the needs of a newborn and yet be modified to turn into high and junior chairs as well. The high chairs associated with the 14 incidents reported earlier did not cause any child to experience injuries.

Mima should be contacted if you have one of the high chairs in your possession. Recalled units should be replaced for free. The replacement parts and instructions should be sent to all impacted consumers.

The units of the recalled chairs were given away during a taping of the Ellen DeGeneres TV show on May 9, 2014. Other chairs were sold nationwide between February 2014 and September 2014.
