WASHINGTON (AP) – More than 485,000 Chico Polly high chairs are being recalled after a design flaw led to children getting cuts and bruises.

Importer Artsana USA Inc. knows of 21 children getting injured from falling against pegs on the back legs of the chairs, which are meant to store the tray. Four children got cuts serious enough to require stiches, and one had a scratched cornea.

There are 26 chair models involved. They were sold from January 2005 through this month online and at major chains including Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and Toys R Us.

Model details are on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website at www.cpsc.gov, or at www.chiccousa.com/pollykit.

The company will provide free kits to cover the pegs. Requests may be made online or by calling 800-807-8817.
