Graco is voluntarily recalling its Classic Wood Highchairs after reports of children falling from the chairs, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Tuesday afternoon.
So far, Graco has received 58 reports of the highchair seats loosening or detaching from the base. In nine reported cases, children have fallen from the highchairs as the seat separated from the base of the chair. The kids have suffered bumps, bruises and scratches, and at least one child in Canada suffered a concussion as a result of a fall from the highchair.
About 86,000 highchairs in the U.S. and 3,400 in Canada are being recalled by Graco, in cooperation with the CPSC and Health Canada.
If you own one of these chairs, stop using it immediately. (It's also illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product, the release from the CPSC reminds.)
