Graco recalls 36K highchairs sold exclusively at Walmart for fall hazard

By Colleen Kave, J.D.

Graco Children’s Products Inc., of Atlanta, Georgia, has recalled around 36,000 Graco Table2Table 6-in-1 highchairs because the highchair’s rear legs can pivot out of position, making the chair unstable and posing a fall hazard to a child in the highchair. An additional 3,200 highchairs were sold in Canada (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 18-112, March 1, 2018).

Incidents and injuries. Graco has received 38 reports of the rear legs pivoting out of position, including five injuries to children who got bumps and bruises when their highchair fell over when they were in it.

Product description. This recall involves Graco Table2Table™ 6-in-1 highchairs with model number 1969721. The 6-in-1 highchairs convert to six different modes, including a traditional highchair, a booster seat, and a toddler chair and table. The highchair’s cushion is white with gold and gray polka dots. The model number is printed on a label on the underside of the toddler seat and on a label on the back of the booster seat. "Graco" and "Table2Table highchair" are also printed on the label on the underside of the toddler seat.

These highchairs were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide from October 2016 through December 2017 for about $100.

Remedy. Consumers should stop using the recalled highchairs immediately and contact Graco for a free repair kit.

Customer contact. For more information, customers may contact Graco at 800-345-4109 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or online at www.gracobaby.com and click on "Support," then "Product Recalls."
