Evenflo high chairs recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Evenflo highchairs due to fall and choking hazards.

The company has received 13 reports of incidents involving fastener and screws coming lose, increasing the risk of injury.

Consumers were advised to stop using the highchairs immediately and contact Evenflo for a free repair kit.
