A recent child product recall has affected more than 1 million consumers in the United States. Graco has announced a voluntary recall of their Harmony high chairs due to the risk of children falling out of the high chairs, possibly resulting in serious injuries. Graco received 464 reports concerning unstable high chairs that either tip over or cause children to fall out of them.
According to the complaints, screws holding the front legs of the Harmony high chairs can loosen, leading to the risk of the child falling. Not only were there faulty screws, but the plastic cover on the front legs and the bracket on the rear legs of the high chair can crack. If any of these cracks were to occur, the recalled high chair could become unstable and unexpectedly tip over.
Of the 24 injuries reported in connection with these faulty high chairs, most included bumps, bruises and scratches. More serious child injuries reported include a hairline fracture to the arm and several reports of child head injuries.
The recalled Graco high chairs that are affected by this voluntary action include Harmony high chairs that were sold between December 2003 and March 2010. Graco issued a statement that consumers can send for a repair kit to fix the problems.
