TOMY Boon Flair and Flair Elite Highchairs Recalled | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

TOMY and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) are warning parents to stop using their Boon Flair and Flair Elite highchairs, and have issued a recall. This news comes after 34 reports of the chair separating from the base. The bolts that are used to attach the seat to the base have the potential to become loose. In at least 24 cases, children were in the seats when they fell off. The CPSC says 11 of those children were hurt with injuries that include bruises and scratches.

“We want to ensure that your child has only the safest products we can offer and will work to remedy this situation promptly—with your child’s safety and your trust in mind,” the company says in a statement on its website.
