The high chairs are a safety hazard, the safety commission said in the release.

According to the agency, TOMY has received 34 reports of the chair separating from the base, including 24 falls resulting in 11 injuries such as bruising and scratches.

"The bolts used to secure the seat of the recalled highchair to the pedestal base can become loose and allow the seat to detach, posing a fall hazard," the safety commission said.

The affected Flair Elite highchair has a white and orange molded plastic seat, a white tray, and a metal base, the agency reported. The Flair highchairs have a gray plastic base and were sold in 10 color combinations.
