Highchairs given away during a taping of the Ellen DeGeneres Show have been recalled following more than a dozen customer complaints.

Mima is recalling about 1,500 Moon 3-in-1 high chairs because the seat can loosen and dislodge, allowing the seat and the child to fall. The company received 14 complaints of the chair loosening, but injuries have been reported.

The recall affects Moon model 3-in-1 high chairs which adjust to a newborn, high, and junior chair with a unique design consisting of a base with two feet supporting a single post that holds up the seat in a clear shell.

The serial and model numbers are located on a sticker on the inside of one of the two feet that form the base of the high chair. A full list of recalled serial and model numbers can be found on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

The majority of the high chairs were given away at the May 9, 2014 taping of the Ellen DeGeneres television show.

The remaining chairs were sold at children's juvenile product stores in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, Texas and Virginia from February 2014 through September 2014 for about $500.

Consumers should stop using the high chair immediately and contact Mima to receive a free replacement piece or instructions on receiving a refund.
