Parents take note:

About 1.2 million Graco "Harmony" high chairs are being recalled because of flaws that might make them tip over.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that news a short time ago. There's plenty of information about the affected chairs at that CPSC link. And, Graco has posted details here.

Graco writes that:

"The screws holding the front legs of the high chair can loosen and fall out and/or the plastic bracket on the rear legs can crack causing the high chair to become unstable and tip over unexpectedly. This poses a fall hazard to children."

The CPSC says there have been 464 reports of problems, and at least 24 injuries to children — the most serious being "a hairline fracture to the arm."
