March 18, 2010 -- Graco Children's Products Inc. of Atlanta is recalling more than a million of its Graco Harmony high chairs after getting hundreds of reports of the high chairs tipping over and 24 reports of children's injuries.

If you have one of these high chairs, stop using it immediately and contact Graco to receive a free repair kit. Reach Graco by phone at 877-842-3206 or visit Graco's web site.

The Reason for the Recall

"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. This poses a fall hazard to children," states a Graco news release.

Injuries Reported

"Graco has received 464 reports of screws loosening/falling out and/or plastic brackets cracking, causing the high chair to tip over unexpectedly," states the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in a news release. The CPSC says those tip-overs 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.

Recalled High Chairs

The Graco Harmony high chair recall includes about 1.2 million high chairs in the U.S. and 35,000 in Canada.
