MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a voluntary recall on Chicco Polly High Chairs.
An estimated 455,000 chairs were recalled in the United States for laceration hazards.
Officials said children can fall on or against the pegs on the rear legs causing bruising or lacerations. 21 injuries have been reported.
Officials said the pegs on the chair are 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.
The chairs were sold at Babies R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Buy Buy Baby, Shopko and Toys R Us, as well as online outlets including Albeebaby.com, Amazon.com, Babyage.com, Babysupermart.com, Diapers.com and Target.com from January 2005 through July 2012 for between $100 and $150.
Consumers should contact Chicco for a free peg cover kit which will be mailed to them.
To help prevent injuries before repair, consumers should store the tray on the pegs when the high chair is not in use.
