The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Artsana USA, announce a voluntary recall of the Chicco Polly Highchair due to laceration hazard.
This recall involves a range of Chicco Polly highchairs with pegs on the back legs intended for tray storage manufactured prior to October 13, 2010. The highchairs have a folding frame for storage and reclining seat. The model number and date code can be found on a label which is on the underside of the seat close to the footrest. Affected model numbers are listed further down the page.
Children call fall on or against the pegs on the rear legs of the highchair, resulting in bruising or laceration injury. The firm is aware of 21 reports of incidents in which a child fell against the peg and received injuries, including four laceration injuries requiring medical closure ( stitches, tape, or glue) and one scratched cornea.
