Phil&teds and CPSC have received 19 reports of the chairs falling off a variety of different table surfaces, resulting in five injuries. Two reports of injuries involved children's fingers being severely pinched, lacerated, crushed or amputated. Three other reports involved bruising injuries that occurred when a child struck the table or floor after the chair suddenly detached.
Here's what happens:
Chairs can detach from a variety of different table surfaces because of missing or worn clamp pads. When one side of the chair detaches and falls, children's fingers can get caught between the front bar and the clamping mechanism. Stop using the chairs immediately and call the company toll-free at (877) 432-1641 or visit the company's website at: www.philandteds.com/support to receive a free new repair kit. The new kit includes new rubber clamp pads and rubber boots and plastic spacers, plus tools and instructions for installing the new pieces onto the chair. The repair kit also comes with revised instructions on how to use the chair correctly. All consumers who have these chairs should get revised instructions from the website.
Even if you previously received a repair kit from phil&teds with only rubber boots, you should stop using the chair and get the NEW repair kit. The old kit you received from the company does not include all of the parts necessary to prevent the fall and amputation hazards.
CPSC is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are directly related to the phil&teds metoo clip-on chair. Please tell us about them by visiting http://saferproducts.gov. SafetyGov USCPSC.
