Nearly 90,000 Classic Wood Highchairs have been recalled in the US and Canada because of a potential fall hazard.
What's the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Graco Children's Products Inc., of Atlanta, Georgia, has recalled about 90,000 Classic Wood Highchairs. The high chair's seat can loosen or detach from the base, posing a fall hazard to the child.
To date, there have been 58 reports where the seat of the high chair has become loose or detached from the base—and nine reports of children falling and getting bumped, bruised, or scratched. Graco has received one report of a concussion in Canada.
Do You Own It?
This recall involves all Graco brand Classic Wood Highchairs sold in three wood finishes. The high chair has a top seat, bottom leg assembly and removable tray. The high chair is sold with a beige fabric seat cover. Model numbers are printed on a label on the underside of the seat. The numbers included in the recall are:
- 3C00BPN TC

The highchairs, which cost about $130, were sold at various major retailers, including Babies R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, and at Target.com and Walmart.com and other online retailers between September 2007 and December 2010.
