Do you use Graco highchairs? They have a recall!!

Graco announced a recall of about 1.2 million highchairs in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The screws holding the front legs of the highchair can become loose and fall out. The plastic bracket on the rear legs can also crack, causing the highchair to become unstable and tip over unexpectedly. This poses a fall hazard to children.

Graco has received 464 reports of screws loosening or falling out and plastic brackets cracking, causing the highchair to tip over unexpectedly. These tip-overs resulted in 24 reports of injuries, including bumps and bruises to the head, a hairline fracture to the arm, and cuts, bumps, bruises, and scratches to the body.
