About 35,000 chairs have been sold at Toys “R” Us and Walmart stores in the United States, and online at Walmart.com and Wayfair.com between December 2011 and June 2012 for about $40. The chair was manufactured in China.

I love how they are recalling perfectly good seat because of parental negligence. If the parent had strapped the child in,as directions in ALL highchairs state, then if and when the tray popped off the child would have been unharmed and all the parent would have to do is clean up a small mess.
