November 22, 2000Cosco Inc. Recalls Options
5 High Chairs
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
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.
