Moon 3-in-1 High Chairs
Mima has recalled about 1,470 Moon 3-in-1 High Chairs due to faulty manufacturing. The high chair seat can loosen and dislodge itself, allowing the seat and the child to fall.
The affected high chairs adjust to newborn, high, and junior chair levels. The high chairs have a unique design, consisting of a base with two feet that supports a single post holding up the seat in a clear shell. The inner seat is white and has a removable seat pad in black, white, or camel. The high chair measures about 3 feet tall and has a “Mima” logo where the metal post attaches to the seat.

The chairs were sold at children’s product stores in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, illinois, New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, Texas, and Virginia between February and September 2014 for about $500. They were also given away at the May 9, 2014, taping of the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Mima has received 14 reports of the high chair seat loosening, and no injuries have been reported. Consumers should stop using the high chair immediately and contact Mima to receive a free replacement for the upper chair section or instructions on obtaining a refund.
