Missing or worn clamp pads allow the chairs to detach from a variety of different table surfaces, posing a fall hazard.
In addition, when the chair detaches, children's fingers can be caught between the bar and clamping mechanism, posing an amputation hazard.
The product is an infant/toddler chair with a nylon fabric seat and a metal frame that clamps onto tables using two metal vise clamps.
The upper part of each clamp rests on the table top and has either a rubber pad on its underside or a rubber boot covering the clamp. The chair is sold in three fabric colors - red, black and navy. Chairs subject to this recall do not have black plastic spacers between the cross bar and the clamps.
They were sold through Buy Buy Baby, Target, Toys R Us and their online sites; philandteds.com; Amazon.com; other online retailers; and a variety of independent juvenile specialty stores from May 2006 to May 2011 for between $40 and $50.
Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact the company to receive a free repair kit and revised user instructions.
