The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada announced a recall yesterday affecting Graco Classic Wood Highchairs. About 86,000 in the United States and 3,400 in Canada were recalled as the high chair’s seat can loosen or detach from the base, posing a fall hazard to the child.
So far, 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.
This recall involves 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 on the underside of the seat assembly.
The chairs were sold in 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.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled high chairs and contact Graco for a free repair kit.
