WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Safety officials are recalling more than 485,000 Chicco Polly high chairs after a design flaw led to children getting cuts and bruises.
Importer Artsana USA Inc. knows of 21 children getting hurt from falling against pegs on the back legs of the chairs, which are meant to store the tray. Four children got cuts serious enough to require stitches, and one had a scratched cornea.
There are 26 chair models involved. The recalled chairs were sold from January 2005 through this month online and at major chains including Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and Toys R Us.
If you have a recalled high chair, contact Chicco for a free peg cover kit which will be sent in the mail. Officials say to help prevent injuries before repair, consumers should store the tray on the pegs when the high chair is not in use.
For more information contact Chicco by phone a 1-800-807-8817 or online.
