Recall – Graco Harmony High Chairs

Comments Off

Graco, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced a voluntary recall of more than 1.2 million Graco Harmony High Chairs due to a fall hazard to children.

The screws that hold the front legs of the chair can loosen or fall out and/or the plastic bracket near the back legs can crack causing the chair to become unstable.

To this date, the company has received 464 reports of the chairs tipping over unexpectedly due to the screws loosening and/or cracked brackets. Twenty-four reports involved injuries that included bumps, scratches and bruises and in one case a hairline fracture to the arm.

The recalled high chairs were manufactured from November 2003 through December 2009 and are no longer in production. The CPSC News Release includes a list of all model numbers affected by the recall.

The agency advises consumers to stop using the recalled high chairs and to contact Graco for a free repair kit.

To order a free repair kit, contact Graco toll-free at (877) 842-3206 or visit their Web site at www.gracobaby.com.
