After receiving reports of one concussion and nine incidents of bumps, bruises, and scratches due to falls after high chair seats became loose or detached from the base, Graco, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada, is voluntarily recalling its Classic Wood Highchairs. The company is aware of 58 reports of the high chair seats loosening or detaching from the base.
The chairs were manufactured in China and imported by Graco Children’s Products Inc., of Atlanta, Ga. About 86,000 units were sold in the United States and 3,400 in Canada. The high chairs were sold at Babies R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, and other retail stores nationwide and at Target.com and Walmart.com and other online retailers between September 2007 and December 2010 for about $130.
The recall includes all Graco brand Classic Wood Highchairs sold in three wood finishes. The high chair has a top seat, bottom leg assembly, and removable tray. The high chair is sold with a beige fabric seat cover. Model number 3C00BPN, 3C00BPN TC, 3C00CHY, 3C00CHY TC, 3C00CPO, or 3C00CPO TC is printed on a label underneath the seat assembly.
