Mother with her child

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.

Defective product

Consumers select particular brands and products for countless reasons. For some it’s finding the best deal, others are loyal to particular brands, and the list goes on. Regardless of how or why you decide upon which purchases to make, it should be a fair assumption that the product(s) sold won’t cause physical harm or pose safety risks, but sadly time and time again manufacturers are failing to ensure consumer safety. 

“Baby stroller” and “choking hazard” are two terms no parent wants to hear in the same sentence. Fortunately, no injuries have been associated with the recent UPPAbaby recall, which includes UPPAbaby 2015 CRUZ, 2015 VISTA strollers and the 2015 Rumbleseat. The recalled strollers contain a foam crossbar. Babies/small children could potentially bite off the foam and choke.
