After 24 instances of product liability-related injuries were reported from high chairs, a company with a recent history of recalls is getting another one.
The Christian Science Monitor reports that the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled 1.2 million high chair from Graco Children’s Products Inc. over concerns of children’s injuries. This is the company’s third major recall in six months and the largest in Graco’s history.

Our firm’s San Diego personal injury lawyers want to make sure that your kids are free of children’s injuries, which can harm their bodies and in some cases, cause pain and suffering for their rest of their lives. Making sure you know about design defects and dangerous products helps to keep your little ones safe and happy.
Since December, 2003, Toys “R” Us, Sears, Target, Wal-Mart, and other nationwide retailers have stocked the Harmony High Chair. The front legs of the Harmony High Chair have screws that can slip out when they become loose and the plastic bracket holding the back legs has been found to easily crack. In both instances, this can cause the chair to fall over or collapse on itself.
Earlier this year, Graco had to recall a number of strollers that they had manufactured after it was discovered that children were able to put their fingers through a certain latch that opened and closed and amputated several young kids fingers in the process.
Graco has asked that consumers stop using this particular high chair model and if you need a repair kit, contact Graco at (877) 842-3206 or on online at www.gracobaby.com. Our personal injury lawyers in San Diego urge you to take part in the recall so that your family can be safe when you sit down to the dinner table.
