More than 640,000 high chairs have been recalled because of faulty screws that could cause infants to fall or choke, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Thursday.

The voluntary recall in conjunction with the high chair's maker, Evenflo, came after more than 300 reports of seatbacks detaching or reclining unexpectedly, according to a CPSC press release.

Additionally, there have been reports of screws falling out of the high chairs, which presented a choking hazard, the agency said.

All Evenflo Envision high chairs, including model numbers: 2891321, 2891321A, 2891333, 2891351, 2891351A, 2891365, 2891375, 2891403, 2891403A, 2891466, 2891466A, 2891478, 2891536, 2891536A, 2891573, 2891586, 2892351 and 2892351A are part of the recall. The model number can be found on a white label on the seatback. "Evenflo" and "Envision" are printed on the front of the tray, the CPSC said.

The high chairs are made in China. The CPSC advises owners to immediately stop using the high chairs and contact Evenflo at (800) 233-5921 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site.
