NEW YORK — Thousands of highchairs made by the company Safety 1st are being recalled because children are able to remove the trays and fall from the seat, hurting themselves, the company said Thursday.

Safety 1st has received 68 reports of children taking off the trays, the company said. Eleven of those cases resulted in injuries such as cuts, bruises and chipped teeth.

The recall involves about 35,000 Safety 1st Wood Decor highchairs marked with these three model numbers, which are printed under the seat:

  • HC144BZF (Casablanca)
  • HC229CZF (Gentle Lace)
  • HC229CYG (Black Lace)

Covered in a removable black and white print seat pad with a blue or pink border, the chairs were sold between May 2013 and May 2015 at Babies R Us and Toys R Us stores nationwide, as well as online at,,, and, among other digital retailers, the company said. They cost about $120 each.

Anyone who has the highchairs are urged to stop using them and contact Safety 1st for details on how to receive a new tray.

The company can be reached weekdays from 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET at 877-717-7823, or by emailing
