Today the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), along with Graco Children’s Products, announced a recall of approximately 1.2 million Harmony High Chairs. The high chair can become unstable or tip over if screws holding the front legs of the high chair loosen or fall out, or if the plastic bracket on the rear legs cracks.
Graco has received 464 reports of high chairs tipping over. There are 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.
The recall involves the Harmony High Chair, manufactured from November 2003 to December 2009. The high chairs were sold at retailers nationwide for between $70 and $120. Model numbers can be found on the CPSC website: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml10/10171.html.
Consumers should stop using the high chair immediately and contact Graco to receive a free repair kit.
