PARENTS: Graco high chair recall could affect your child
When things like a Graco high chair recall are announced, parents should pay attention. Parents with small children must always be mindful of their safety, particularly around high chairs. This is not to say that parents should be paranoid that their child will fall the moment they look away, but according to the Graco high chair Web site, a design flaw has been detected in the Graco Harmony 2010 model that can cause the chair to tip over. Thankfully, you won’t need an installment loan for the fix, as the company is offering a free repair kit.
Third Graco high chair recall since 2001
The trouble with the Graco Harmony 2010 is the screws used to hold together the front legs of the chair. Apparently, these screws can easily become loose and fall out of their screw holes. In addition, a plastic bracket that attaches to the rear legs of the chair can crack. Both of these flaws can cause the Graco Harmony 2010 to become unstable and tip over unexpectedly. Graco indicates that 24 related injuries have been reported so far, so this Graco high chair recall is needed immediately.
