Cosco Inc. Recalls Options 5™ High Chairs

High Chair RecalledColumbus, OH (SafetyAlerts) - Cosco Inc. has announced a recall affecting its Options 5™ High Chairs.  The seats of these high-chairs may slip from their 'set' height positions, or separate from the frame and fall to the ground.

The Options 5™ High Chairs being recalled have the model number of 03286 printed on the label on the back or bottom of the chair followed by manufacturing dates between 4797 and 3600.  The first two numbers indicate the date of manufacture and the last 2 numbers indicate the year.  Only Options 5™ High Chairs bearing this model number and date range are affected by this recall.

Cosco is offering consumers two types of repair kits, depending on the date their high chair was manufactured. To prevent seat separation, all kits will contain a redesigned handle that stays out and fits over the frame each time the seat is used in the recline position. In many incidents in the recline position, the handle was not over the frame of the high chair.

Consumers should stop using these high chairs immediately, and order a free repair kit from Cosco by calling (800) 221-6736 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. Consumers also may visit the company's web site at here to order a free repair kit and to obtain instructions for proper assembly and use. When contacting Cosco, consumers should have the chair in front of them to provide the model number and four-digit manufacture date, which are located on the bottom of the seat. The manufacture date will determine which repair kit is needed.
