The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Graco Children’s Products Inc., of Atlanta, Ga., announced a voluntary recall of Graco Harmony High Chairs on Thursday. They said consumers should stop using product immediately unless otherwise instructed. The recall affects about 1.2 million high chairs that were manufactured between November 2003 and December 2009. The high chairs are no longer in production.

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.

Graco has received 464 reports of screws loosening/falling out and/or plastic brackets cracking causing the high chair to tip over unexpectedly. These tip-over’s 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.

This recall involves all Harmony High Chairs. The Harmony high chair was manufactured from November 2003 through December 2009 and is no longer in production. The model number can be found on the label that is located on the underside of the foot rest.

Model numbers include:
