A number of baby high chairs sold at several major stores across the country have been recalled over fears they could pose a serious injury risk to children.
The national recall affects CNP Brands’ Bebecare Pod Nui High Chair, Childcare Pod High Chair and Childcare Coda High Chair, sold between January 13 2016, and November 2 2018.
Product Safety Australia said the plastic casing at the top of the high chair leg may develop cracks or break, which may lead to the chair legs twisting and can impact on the strength and stability of the chairs legs.

“If the plastic shell breaks or cracks and the chair legs becomes unstable, this could result in the chair collapsing, increasing the risk of injury to small children,” the recall notice reads.
The chairs were available at Big W, Baby Bunting (online store only), Target, Baby Junction, Amazon (online store) and www.catch.com.au.
The high chairs affected include:
- Bebecare Pod Nui High Chair, Snowflake, Model number 095102-378

“Consumers should immediately cease using the product and check if the product is affected by reviewing the product details beside the barcode, which is located under the plastic seat of the high chair,” PSA said.
Anyone who has purchased a recalled high chair is being urged to go to www.safetymatterscnp.com.au and register.
“A supportive crossbrace kit designed to strengthen the structure of the high chair and prevent twisting of the chair legs will be sent to the consumer, with installation instructions, at no cost,” PSA said.
