Graco Children’s Products Inc., have been working closely with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue a safety recall of the Harmony High Chair. 1.2 million Graco high chairs from 2003 to 2009 are affected by this recall – we can tell you that the Harmony models are no longer in production.
The reason behind this voluntary recall is because the screws that hold the legs on the high chair can become loose and fall out, the plastic bracket on the rear legs can also crack. Both these faults can cause the chair to tip over; this is very dangerous if a child is sitting in the chair at the time.
There have now been 464 reports of loose screws falling out, as well as that plastic bracket issue. According to MSNBC there have been 24 reports of injuries, these include a hairline fracture to the arm, bumps and bruises, scratches and cuts.
The chairs affected by this recall are those sold by Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Sears, Wal-Mart, Sears, Burlington Coat Factory, amongst others.
