High chairs recalled after design flaw discovered

Nearly half a million high chairs are being recalled because of a dangerous design flaw.

21 children have been injured from falling pegs on Chicco Polly High Chairs.

Retailers that have sold the chairs over the last seven years include Albeebaby.com, Amazon.com, Babyage.com, Babysupermart.com, Diapers.com and Target.com.

This recall involves a range of Chicco Polly high chairs with pegs on the back legs intended for tray storage.

The high chairs have a folding metal frame for storage and a reclining seat.

The recalled high chairs can be identified by the model number and date code printed on a label on the underside of the seat, close to the footrest.

The date code is in the format DDMMYYYY or YYYY-MM-DD.

High chairs included in this recall were manufactured prior to October 13, 2010 and have one of the following model numbers on the label:
