More than one million Fisher-Price high chairs are being recalled after 14 kids were hurt on the pegs sticking out of the rear legs that are used for storage, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada said. Of the 14 reports to Fisher-Price, seven of the children needed stitches, the CPSC said.
The models of high chair being recalled are: Healthy Care, Easy Clean and Close to Me. About 950,000 were sold in the U.S. and another 125,000 in Canada. They were made in China and Mexico.
Each of the high chairs has a folding frame and a three-position seat that reclines. Every model of the All Easy Clean and Close To Me high chairs are being recalled.
The Healthy Care High Chairs being recalled are limited to those made prior to December 2006. The fourth digit of the date code must be 6 or less. Consumers can find that information on the back of the seat.
The high chairs were sold from September 2001 through September 2010 for about $70 to $115.
Consumers are asked to stop using the high chairs and contact Fisher-Price, which will provide a free repair kit.
