Recalls The First Years

RECALLS: RC2 The First Years™ Children’s Feeding Seats Due to Fall Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and RC2 are voluntarily issuing a recall on about 100,000 The First Years Newborn-to-Toddler Reclining Feeding Seats because the restraining straps can pull out of the waist strap slots, posing a fall hazard to young children.

RC2 has received 38 reports of straps pulling out or nearly pulling out of waist strap slots. There have been 12 reports of children falling out of the chairs.

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.

Parents are asked to contact RC2 to obtain free replacement straps.

For additional information, contact RC2 toll-free at (866) 725-4407 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at

IMPORTANT: THE 2 SEATS PICTURES BELOW HAVE NOT BEEN RECALLED. Please check the back of your seat before contacting the company.
