Product Safety Australia has stated that the Stokke Steps Bouncer set accessory may not attach properly to the Stokke Steps high chair, despite the fact the locking indicator has turned green.

“If someone leans on or hangs off the back of the high chair, this may cause the product to detach from the high chai,,” the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said on its website.

“This defect only occurs when the Stokke Steps High Chair and the Stokke Steps Bouncer are used together.”

Consumers are urged to stop using the combination of the Stokke Steps Chair and Bouncer immediately, and to visit the Stokke website to see if you have purchased the affected product.

Customers whose have an affected item can fill in a registration form to receive instructions on how to get it repaired.
