According to the company, about 455,000 of the high chairs were sold in the U.S. and 30,690 in Canada at retail stores including Babies R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Buy Buy Baby, Shopko and Toys R Us, as well as online outlets including Albeebaby.com, Amazon.com, Babyage.com, Babysupermart.com, Diapers.com and Target.com, from January 2005 through July 2012 for between $100 and $150.

Consumers were urged to contact Chicco at 800-807-8817, for a free peg cover kit which will be mailed to them. To help prevent injuries before repair, consumers should store the tray on the pegs when the high chair is not in use.
