March 18, 2010: Graco Recalls High Chairs Due to Fall Hazard
Many styles of the high chair are included in this recall. Image here represents just one.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Graco Children’s Products Inc., of Atlanta, Georgia, has recalled about 1.2 million Graco Harmony™ high chairs. The screws holding the front legs of the high chair can loosen and fall out and/or the plastic bracket on the rear legs can crack causing the high chair to become unstable and tip over unexpectedly. This poses a fall hazard to children.
Graco has received 464 reports of screws loosening/falling out and/or plastic brackets cracking causing the high chair to tip over unexpectedly. These tip-overs resulted in 24 reports of injuries including bumps and bruises to the head, a hairline fracture to the arm, and cuts, bumps, bruises, and scratches to the body.
