TOMY has voluntarily recalled approximately 85,000 Boon Flair and Flair Elite highchairs due to a potential fall hazard. The bolts used to secure the seat to the pedestal base can loosen, causing the seat to detach.
To date, TOMY has received 34 reports of the chair separating from the base, resulting in 24 falls and 11 injuries such as bruising and scratches.
The recall covers Boon Flair highchairs manufactured before September 2016, as well as all Boon Flair Elite highchairs. The Flair Elite highchairs have a white and orange molded plastic seat with a white tray and metal pedestal base. The Flair highchairs have a gray plastic base and were sold in various color combinations. The model numbers and manufacturing dates can be found on a label under the base.
