LANSING (WWJ) – Graco is recalling almost 90,000 of its classic wooden high chairs because the seat can become detached from its base, posing a fall hazard and health risk to young children.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Atlanta-based Graco, a popular children’s products manufacturer, is recalling approximately 86,000 high chairs in the United States and 3,400 in Canada.
Graco has received 58 reports of the high chairs’ seats loosening or detaching from the base. There have been nine reports of children falling as the seat detached from the base, resulting in reports of bumps, bruises and scratches. Graco has received one report of a concussion in Canada.
The recall involves all Graco brand Classic Wood High Chairs sold in three different wood finishes. The high chair has a top seat, bottom leg assembly and removable tray, and is sold with a beige fabric seat cover.
The following model numbers, which can be found on a label on the underside of the seat assembly have been recalled:
- 3C00BPN TC
- 3C00CHY TC
- 3C00CPO TC
The high chairs were sold at Babies R Us, Burlington Coat Factory and other retail stores nationwide, as well as on Target.com, Walmart.com and other online retailers, between September 2007 and December 2010 for about $130.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled high chairs and contact Graco for a free repair kit.
