1.2 million ‘unstable’ Graco highchairs recalled

Graco Children’s Products announced Thursday that it’s recalling 1.2 million Harmony highchairs because of stability issues.

The company, a unit of Newell Rubbermaid Inc. (NWL, Fortune 500) that makes car seats, strollers, swings and other products for kids, said that its Harmony highchairs can be “unstable” and “tip over unexpectedly.”

Graco said that 24 injuries had been reported for the highchair model, which was produced from 2003 to 2009 and retailed for $70 to $120.

The company, in a press release, said the screws holding the front legs of the highchair can loosen and fall out, and the plastic bracket on the rear legs can crack, presenting a hazard to children.

The chairs were sold at Target (TGT, Fortune 500), Toys R Us and Wal-Mart (WMT, Fortune 500).
