The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced that Graco is recalling almost 90,000 wooden high chairs because the seat can become detached from the base of the chair, posing a fall hazard and injury risk to young children. The company has received 58 reports of the seat coming either loose or detaching completely. Nine children have been injured, with reports of bumps, bruises and scratches. One child received a concussion from a fall.
All models of the Graco Classic Wooden High Chair are being recalled. The chair comes in three different wood finishes, has a top seat, bottom leg assembly and removable tray. The chairs were sold at major retailers between September 2007 and December 2010.
