WASHINGTON — Gear and toy manufacturer Chicco is voluntarily recalling its Polly high chair after receiving reports of children injuring themselves on the chair.
The reports are centered on pegs on the rear legs of the high chair that are designed to store the tray when not in use. Chicco has received 21 reports of children falling on the pegs and being injured, including four lacerations that required medical treatment and one scratched cornea.
The recall, done in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, involves about 455,000 chairs sold in the U.S. and 30,690 sold in Canada between January 2005 and July 2012. The affected chairs were made before Oct. 13, 2010. The manufacturer date and the model number can be found on a label under the seat near the footrest.

Consumers should contact Chicco for a free peg cover kit at (800) 807-8817 or www.chiccousa.com/pollykit. The company recommends that the tray be stored on the pegs when the seat is not being used.
