Kids' tabletop chairs recalled

WASHINGTON (AP) - August 17, 2011

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the "metoo" clip-on chairs imported by Colorado-based phil&teds USA Inc., can unexpectedly detach from a table, sending the chair and possibly the child in it plummeting to the floor.

The company and CPSC have received 19 reports of the chairs falling from table surfaces, including five reports with injuries. Two of the injuries involved pinched and cut fingers. The three other injuries involved bruising after a chair detached suddenly and a child struck the table or floor.

About 54,000 of the chairs are being recalled. The recall follows a warning from the commission in May that the chairs were not safe.
