The California Injury Attorney Blog wants parents to know when products are recalled. Yesterday, Graco Children’s Products Inc., recalled 1.2 million Harmony high chairs manufactured between November 2003 through December 2009.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission advises that screws can become loose on these high chairs, which can cause the chair to tip over. The company has received nearly 500 reports of this problem and about 25 of those resulting in injury.
The recall applies to chairs sold at many big box stores. Repair kits can be obtained by contacting the company directly at www.gracobaby.com or by calling an 800 number provided on the website.
This recall underscores the need for parents to be very careful about their purchases and particularly items purchased at garage or yard sales or handed-down from friends and relatives.
