Although phil&teds hasn’t issued a national recall of its metoo clip-on tabletop chairs, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is warning parents to stop using the product immediately. The infant/toddler chair clamps onto tables and has a nylon seat that comes in red, black and navy. The CPSC has found that the clamps can detach from tables, and the chairs can detach when children move around. There also isn’t enough space between the metal bar at the front of the chair and the clamps, which could cause fingers to be pinched, lacerated, crushed or even amputated. The chair costs about $50 and has been distributed since May 2006. The repair kit that phil&teds is offering to consumers has not been approved by the CPSC.  
 
If your child has been injured by this product, contact the CPSC Hotline at (800) 638-2772.
