About 1.2 million Graco Harmony high chairs have been recalled due to a fall hazard.
The voluntary recall was announced by theÂ U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)Â on Thursday, in cooperation with Graco.Â Consumers should stop using product immediately unless otherwise instructed, the CPSC announced.
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, the CPSC reported. 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-oversÂ 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.
The recall involves all HarmonyÂ high chairs, whichÂ were manufactured from November 2003 through December 2009 and is no longer in production. The model number can be found on the label that is located on the underside of the foot rest.
