RC2 Recalls Children's Feeding Seats Due to Fall Hazard

Comments Off

The RC2 Corp., in conjunction with the CPSC, is recalling about 100,000 The First Years Newborn-to-Toddler Reclining Feeding Seats because the restraining straps can pull out of the waist strap slots, which poses a fall hazard to young children and toddlers.

The First Years Newborn-to-Toddler Reclining Feeding Seat can be adjusted between reclining and upright positions. The seat includes a tray, reversible cushion and a three-point safety belt. One side of the seat cushion has a sewn-in label at the top which says “the first years by Learning Curve.” This recall includes all feeding seats except those with an “R” stamped inside a raised circle located on the far left and right of the back of the seatback or those with waist strap slots that are nine inches apart.

So far the company has received 38 reports of the straps of the chair pulling out or nearly pulling out of the waist strap slots and there have been 12 reports of young children falling out of their First Years Newborn-to-Toddler Reclining Feeding Seats.

The product was available in retail stores across the U.S. from October 2006 to November 2007. The chairs were manufactured in the United States.
