The government is announcing a recall of 1.2 million high chairs it says pose a fall hazard to children.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall Thursday involving the product made by Graco Children's Products Inc., of Atlanta.

The regulatory agency said "screws holding the front legs of the high chair can loosen and fall out" and said cracking plastic brackets can cause the high chair to "tip over unexpectedly." These tip-overs resulted in 24 reports of injuries including bumps and bruises to the head, a hairline fracture to the arm and cuts, bumps and bruises and scratches to the body."

The CPSC said consumers should stop using the high chairs immediately and identified the recall product as "all Harmony-TM high chairs." It said the product is no longer in production and said the model number can be located on the underside of the foot rest.

Graco issued a statement saying safety is the company's top priority.

"We take great pride in the quality and safety of our products, and as such, we are disappointed with the performance of the Harmony High Chair," the statement said.

"In the case of Harmony, we have worked closely with the CPSC to identify and provide an appropriate fix. We are confident that we have come up with a solution that will improve the performance of this chair."
