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 today involving a high chair made by Graco Children's Products of Atlanta.

The regulatory agency says "screws holding the front legs of the high chair can loosen and fall out," and says cracking plastic brackets can cause the high chair to "tip over unexpectedly." Tip-overs have 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.
