Product title
Children's high-chair
Unknown
Product description
Wooden high chairs for children, approx. 58 cm high, available with seats in different colours. Sold without a restraint system, which can be ordered separately. The product is supplied in a cardboard box.
Risk
The chair is sold without a restraint system and the child could fall off the chair and suffer fractures or severe head injury. When the separately sold restraint system is installed, the leg openings are too large and the child could pass both legs through them and slide out, with the risk of chest or head entrapment, leading to strangulation. Moreover, the high-chair is not sufficiently stable and could easily tip over, causing injuries to the child. The product does not comply with the relevant European standard EN 14988.
