Due to laceration and choking hazards, Trend Lab LLC has announced a voluntary recall on around 16,850 of its line of children’s upholstered toddler chairs. While there have been no incidents or accidents reported to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Trend Lab has been made aware that in rare situations involving excessive use or abuse of the recalled chairs, staples on the back binding of the chairs may become loose and present potential risks to toddlers.
Offered in both Club style and Mod Style, the recalled upholstered toddler chairs are 24” wide by 17” deep. The Mod style chairs were sold in dark pink or zebra printed velour in chocolate on blue or pink; or also on printed fabric of chocolate stripes on blue or pink.
The Club style chairs vary between three different style fabrics and colors: suede in brown, pink, avocado green, red and turquoise blue; velour in blue, green, pink and red; and print fabric in chocolate dot on pink or blue.
Attached on the bottom of the recalled chairs is the “Trend Lab” name along with date codes TL1007C (October 2007) through TL0812C (August 2012). These codes are read as TL, two-digit month, two-digit year, and then followed by C. New, unaffected chairs are now being sold with “Remedy 2012” stamped in ink on the bottom side of the chair. While all chairs were sold with matching ottomans, the ottomans are not included in the recall.
The recalled toddler chairs were sold online for about $100 to $140 at Trend-Lab.com, Amazon.com, BabiesRUs.com, Target.com, Walmart.com, and Seussland.com, as well as in Buy Buy Baby and other baby specialty stores from November 2007 until August 2012.
If you currently own one or more of the recalled upholstered toddler chairs, CPSC and Trend Lab urge you to immediately take the chair away from children and inspect the binding for loose staples.
