New York, NY — The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Graco Children’s Products have voluntarily recalled Graco Classic Wood Highchairs for fall hazards posed to young children. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on October 9, 2012.
The recall was issued after discovering that the high chair's seat can loosen or detach from the base, posing a fall hazard to the child.
The CPSC revealed that there have been nine reports of children falling as a result of the seat detaching from the base, which resulted in reports of bumps, bruises and scratches.
“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 CPSC reported.
