Product Recall: Graco Contempo Highchairs

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Nutrition: Health, Baby Essentials

Graco Children's Products Inc., of Exton, Pennsylvania, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling for repair their Graco Contempo Highchairs. The highchair can collapse if not fully opened and locked. There have been 20 reports of the highchair collapsing, including two outside the US. In one case an 18-month-old boy got a bruise on his foot from the collapse.

These Contempo highchairs feature an A-frame design, six height adjustment positions, and three recline positions. They were manufactured between October 27, 2005 and November 22, 2006. Various model numbers are being recalled, including ones beginning with the numbers: 3800, 3803, 3804, 3805, 3810 and 3811. These model numbers are followed by a three letter fashion code. The highchairs were sold by Babies/Toys R Us, Target, Wal-Mart, USA Baby, and others from December 2005 through December 2006. They cost between $100 and $130. If you have one of the recalled highchairs, you can continue to use it, but be certain it is fully opened first. Open the highchair until you hear a "click", indicating that the hub is locked in place. Meanwhile, contact Graco to receive a free repair kit. For more information, contact Graco toll-free at (877) 445-1312 anytime or visit the firm's Web site.
