Although there have not yet been any injuries reported in connection with the recalled BabyHome high chairs, the CPSC warns that the front opening between the seat bottom and tray may allow a child’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck. This could pose a strangulation hazard for young children that are not harnessed. According to the CPSC recall announcement, consumers should stop using the defective high chairs immediately and contact BabyHome USA to receive a free crotch restraint repair kit.
