Nuna Baby Essentials has announced a recall for high chairs due to a safety hazard.

The Dutch company is recalling its ZAAZ high chair due to reports that the arm bar can bend or detach during use, posing a fall hazard to children. About 5,600 chairs were sold in the United States.

Nuna has received 50 reports of the arm bar detaching, including six reports of children falling from the high chair. Four incidents resulted in injuries, including bruising and a cut on the forehead.

The recalled product is sold in eight model and color schemes: HC-07-004(pewter), HC-07-005(carbon), HC-07-006(plum), HC-07-009(almond), HC-08-004(pewter), HC-08-005(carbon), HC-08-006(plum) and HC-08-009(almond). ZAAZ and the model number are printed under the high chair seat on a white sticker. Nuna is printed above the footrest of the unit.

Consumers could purchase these items at Albee Baby, Giggle, Magic Bean, Nordstrom and other specialty stores nationwide and at online outlets from February 2013 through November 2015 for about between $250 and $300.

Consumers should immediately stop using these recalled high chairs and contact the company to receive a free new arm bar and instructions on how to replace it.

Customers with questions about this recall can contact Nuna at (855) 686-2872.
