WASHINGTON - Graco Children's Products Inc. of Atlanta, GA, issued a voluntary recall of nearly 90,000 Graco Classic Wood Highchairs after receiving reports of 10 child fall accidents from consumers in the United States and Canada.
A child in Canada reportedly suffered a concussion when the highchair malfunctioned. The other nine incidents involved children who sustained bumps, bruises and/or scratches.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said highchair seats can loosen or detach from the base, posing a fall hazard. The voluntary recall, also announced by Health Canada, involves some 86,000 highchairs in the U.S. and about 3,400 in Canada. The chairs were made in China and retailed for approximately $130 at Babies R Us, Burlington Coat Factory and other retail stores nationwide.
Consumer are encouraged to contact Graco Children's Products for a free repair kit.
