1.2 Million Graco High Chairs Recalled

Graco Harmony High Chair Plastic Part

The plastic portion at the top of the back leg of the high chair can crack. To look for cracks, unscrew the plastic cover that goes over the piece shown in this photo and remove the cover. Replace the cover when you are finished checking for cracks.

Moms, Dads, are you using a Graco Harmony high chair? If so, this recall affects you and your child.

The screws holding the front legs of the high chair can loosen and fall out. Also, the plastic cover on the front legs and the bracket on the rear legs can crack. When either of these things happen, the high chairs become unstable and can tip over unexpectedly.

Graco has received 464 reports of screws loosening and/or brackets cracking, causing high chairs to unexpectedly tip over. Parents and caregivers of 24 children have reported injuries, including a hairline fracture to the arm and bumps, bruises and scratches.

Harmony high chairs were sold at AAFES, Burlington Coat Factory, Babies “R” Us, Sears, Shopko, Target, Target.com, Toys “R” Us, Walmart, WalMart.com, USA Baby, and other retailers nationwide from December 2003 through March 2010 for between $70 and $120.
