Product name The Cosco Options 5 high chairs
Description The high chairs being recalled have five options for use: high chair, infant feeding, youth chair, play chair and booster seat. The chair's seat can be used in a reclined infant position or adjusted into seven upright height positions for toddlers. It has four tray positions, a vinyl seat pad and a removable footrest. The restraint system consists of a waist/crotch belt and a plastic T-bar attached to the tray. The recalled chairs can be identified by model number 03-286 and manufacture date, which are located on the bottom of the seat. 
Problem The high chairs are adjustable and have both recline and upright positions. In the recline position, the seats can separate from the frame and fall to the ground. In the upright position, the seats can slip from their set height position to the lowest position or can fall to the ground. Additionally, some seats were sold with a metal restraint anchor that can slip through the back of the seat allowing the child to fall to the ground. Infants and toddlers can suffer head, face and bodily injuries. 
Distribution Manufactured from December 1, 1997 through August 11, 2000. Sold in mass merchandise, juvenile products and major discount department stores nationwide.
