Affected products include the Graco Table2Table 6-in-1 highchair, model number 1969721, which was sold from Oct. 2016 to December 2017 at Walmart in the U.S. and Babies “R” Us in Canada.
The problem is that the $99 Chinese-made highchair was manufactured with legs that can pivot out of position, making the chair unstable.
“Graco has received 38 reports of the rear leg pivoting out of position, including five injuries to children who got bumps and bruises when their highchair fell over when they were in it,” the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said in a recall notice issued Thursday.
In addition to the 36,000 Graco highchairs recalled in the U.S., about 3,200 chairs were recalled in Canada, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
“We encourage consumers who purchased this product to immediately stop using the highchair. Graco will provide a free replacement kit and installation instructions,” Graco said. “We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience our consumers may have experienced, and we appreciate the loyalty of our consumers.”
