The following product safety alert is from the CPSC on February 3, 2015.

Mima Moon 3-in-1 High Chairs has been recalled because the high chair seat can loosen and dislodge, allowing the seat and child to fall. The chair can also fall onto a child crawling underneath the seat, posing an impact hazard to the child.

This recall includes Moon model 3-in-1 high chairs which adjust to a newborn, high and junior chair with a unique design consisting of a base with two feet supporting a single post that holds up the seat in a clear shell. The shell has a white inner seat with a removable seat pad in white, camel or black. The high chair measures about 3 feet tall when in its highest position. There is a “Mima” logo where the metal post attaches to the base to the seat. There is also a “Moon” logo on the inside of the feet that form the base of the high chair. The serial and model numbers are located on a sticker on the inside of one of the two feet that form the base of the high chair.

The firm has received 14 reports of the high chair seat loosening. No injuries have been reported. Remedy
Consumers should stop using the high chair immediately and contact Mima to receive a free replacement upper chair section or instructions on receiving a refund.
The majority of the high chairs were given away at the May 9, 2014 taping of the Ellen DeGeneres television show. The remaining chairs were sold at children’s juvenile product stores in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, Texas and Virginia from February 2014 through September 2014 for about $500.

Consumes can contact Mima at (800) 392-1206 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or online at www.mimakidsusa.com and click on “Moon Recall Information” for more information.
