Tripp Trapp
This date is an estimate
Baby was seated in Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair with infant seat attached (a plastic backplate and belly/crotch bar) and fabric set that covers the back and seat. Chair was pulled up to table, as designed. Baby was somehow able to push off table edge and flip the chair over backwards. The momentum and weight of the chair - plus the baby - quickly pulled the chair past equilibrium, and smashed baby’s head into the wall behind - and baby’s back into the infant seat’s back piece (with fabric cover in use) - which gave baby a large, instantly visible contusion on his back.

Comment from Stokke LLC 10/30/2018
Stokke LLC takes product safety issues very seriously and thoroughly investigates any report to us or the CPSC. In this instance, we have been in contact with the customer and based on the information provided to date, have concluded that the reported incident was not the result of any defect in the Tripp Trapp® chair. Instead, the investigation revealed that the Tripp Trapp® chair at issue was manufactured in 2008 and was not being used with the required extended gliders, which were part of the Baby Set accessory in use at the time of the accident.

When used properly, the Tripp Trapp® chair is one of the safest chairs in the market - over 10 million have been sold worldwide since it was first introduced in 1972 - and meets all applicable safety standards and regulations. The Tripp Trapp® chair also complies with all relevant and applicable safety standards and regulations, including, but not limited to the American safety standard for high chairs - ASTM F404-18.
