The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall by Graco of its Classic Wood Highchairs following reports of children falling from the chairs.
To date, Graco reports 58 incidents in which the highchair seats have loosened or detached. Nine cases have been reported where children fell from the highchairs and suffered injury. Those children sustained bumps, bruises and scratches, although at least one Canadian child suffered a concussion.
Approximately 86,000 highchairs in the United States and 3,400 highchairs in Canada are subject to the current recall. The highchairs were sold between September 2007 and December 2010 at several retailers including Babies R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Target.com and Walmart.com.
