Teen smoking

Chances are you’re unfamiliar with the term ‘JUULing’ (we were too, until recently). A JUUL is an e-cigarette that looks very similar to a USB drive.

Graco has recalled their Table2Table 6-in-1 Highchair line due to a potential fall hazard. According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, “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”.

To date there has been 38 reported instances of the rear leg pivoting out of position, and five reported injuries that resulted from the chair falling over with a child inside.
