Okay, parents...I have another important recall for you. If you have a high chair made by Graco, this one's for you. Be sure and check the model number on your kid's high chair. There are about 15 models that have been recalled. They are being recalled because the screws that hold the front legs onto the chair can get loose, fall out and then the high chair can tip over. Yikes! So, I've included all of the information that the Associated Press released this morning and if you click here you wil get all of the information on the recalled models.

Gov't orders recall of 1.2 million high chairs
   WASHINGTON (AP) -- The government is announcing a recall of some 1.2 million high chairs, saying they pose a fall hazard to children.
   The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall Thursday involving the product made by Graco Children's Products Inc., of Atlanta.
   The regulatory agency said "screws holding the front legs of the high chair can loosen and fall out" and said cracking plastic brackets can cause the high chair 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 and bruises and scratches to the body."
   The CPSC said consumers should stop using the high chairs immediately and identified the recall product as "all Harmony-TM high chairs." It said the product is no longer in production and said the model number can be located on the underside of the foot rest.
   Graco issued a statement saying safety is the company's top priority.
   "We take great pride in the quality and safety of our products, and as such, we are disappointed with the performance of the Harmony High Chair," the statement said.
   "In the case of Harmony, we have worked closely with the CPSC to identify and provide an appropriate fix. We are confident that we have come up with a solution that will improve the performance of this chair."
