The U.S. Consumer Product Commission in cooperation with Graco Children’s Products Inc. has issued a recall for approximately 1.2 million Graco Harmony High Chairs because they may pose a fall hazard to babies and small children.
According to the CPSC, Graco has received 464 reports of screws loosening or falling out on the highchair’s front legs and/or the plastic brackets that holds the rear legs to crack causing the high chair to tip over. Graco has reports of 24 injuries due to falls, including a hairline fracture to the arm, bumps and bruises to the head and body.
The Graco Harmony highchairs were sold at national retailers including Sears, Target, Walmart, Shopko, USA Baby, Toys “R” Us, Babies “R” Us and Burlington Coat Factory.
