The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary product recall of 1.2 million high chairs after discovering some possible hazards to children.
The said high chairs were produced by Graco Children’s Products, Inc. of Atlanta and were recalled because of a possible defect on the screws that hold front legs of the high chairs.

These already resulted to 24 reports of tip over accidents that caused injuries such as bumps and bruises to the head, hairline fracture to the arm, and cuts, bumps, bruises and scratches to the body.
The CPSC identified the product as “all Harmony-TM High Chairs that were manufactured from November 2003 to December 2009.
