There is a recall alert that area parents need to be aware of.
Chicco has recalled 480,000 of its Polly High Chairs due to a possible laceration hazard.
The recall was instated because children can fall on or against the pegs on the rear legs of the high chair, resulting in a bruising or laceration injury. There have been 21 reported injuries from children falling against the peg, including four laceration injuries requiring stitches tape or glue. There was also one scratched cornea reported.
Affected chairs were manufactured before October 13, 2010 and have one of the following model numbers on the label:
