The Harmony High Chair, made by Graco Children's Products Inc., based in Atlanta, is not safe to use, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced Thursday.
The company is the maker of a stroller recalled in January. With 1.5 million units affected, that recall was the largest ever issued in the US.
On its company blog, Graco said the Harmony chair is the only high chair affected by the recall and that the company has “taken significant steps to assess and enhance our internal product design review processes and we are continually committed to developing safe products.”
The screws holding the front legs of the high chair can loosen and fall out, according to the CPSC. The plastic bracket on the rear legs can also crack and cause the chair to topple.
Such incidents resulted in 24 reported injuries.
Consumers can find their chair’s model number under the child’s footrest. Those with affected models (see here for list of recalled chairs) are advised to stop using the chair and contact Graco for a repair kit at (877) 842-3206 or on the Web at www.gracobaby.com.
