High Chairs (1555)
Newell Rubbermaid Inc.    
My husband and I along with our 18 month old son went to a restaurant in Irvine, CA. The restaurant had the RubberMaid high chairs. These chairs have wheels with no locks. It does have a harness. I put my child in the highchair with the harness. The restaurant floor was such that it was very easy to roll the chair and that caused an accident for my child. My son tried to reach out to his food and the chair rolled itself little too quick. As a result my son's instant reaction was to hold the tray. The tray on the farther corner had soup in it causing it to spill on him. He got burned and started to scream and cry. I followed all the first aid steps for a burn and hopefully will not cause his any blisters.

I have enclosed the link to the product for easy reference.

I would highly recommend either discontinuing this product or forcing locks on the wheels. If my son or any other child pushes themselves with any support around them (namely the table), they could roll themselves to a long or short distance. In restaurants there are servers walking with all kinds of food all the time. It can cause severe damage. Hope you agree. Thanks!
