A children's product company is issuing a recall for highchairs due to a fall hazard.

Safety 1st is voluntarily recalling three models of Wood Décor highchairs after receiving reports that children can easily remove the tray. Removing the tray poses a fall hazard to the occupant. The company is including about 35,000 chairs in the recall.

The three recalled models are HC144BZF (Casablanca), HC229CZF (Gentle Lace) and HC229CYG (Black Lace). The model numbers are printed under the highchair seat. These A-frame black wood highchairs have a removable fabric, black and white print seat pad with a blue or pink border on the top and bottom of the seat pad. The highchairs have a white plastic, detachable tray with a cone-shaped center divider that fits between a child's legs. Safety 1st is printed on the front center of the tray.

These items were sold at Babies R U.S. and Toys R Us retail stores nationwide and through several online retailers from May 2013 through May 2015 for about $120.

The company has received 68 reports of children removing the trays, including 11 reports of injuries such as lacerations, chipped teeth and bruises.

Consumers should immediately stop using these recalled highchairs and contact the firm to receive instructions on receiving a new tray with labels.

Customers with questions can contact the company at (877) 717-7823.
