High chairs recalled for fall hazard


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada are announcing the voluntary recall Graco's "Classic Wood High Chairs".   Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.  It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

The recall affects 86,000 high chairs sold in the U.S. and Canada.  The product is being pulled for concerns its seat can loosen or detach from the base, posing a fall hazard to children.

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 nationwide 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, by calling (800) 345-4109 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. eastern time Monday through Friday or visit the firm's website at www.gracobaby.com.
