Graco Children’s Products Inc., have been working closely with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue a safety recall of the Harmony High Chair. 1.2 million Graco high chairs from 2003 to 2009 are affected by this recall – we can tell you that the Harmony models are no longer in production.
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.
Graco has received 464 reports of screws loosening/falling out and/or plastic brackets cracking causing 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, bruises and scratches to the body.

I have launched a service of vertical shopping portals. The first of these is Designer Shoes for Sale. The fundamental problem I am trying to solve is that people shop for different goods in different ways.
For example shoes are purchased in a fundamentally different way than high end electronics. For example shoe sizing and shoe fit are very different from designer to designer. Most people when they are shopping for shoes online are looking for a replacement pair of shoes to the ones they already own. No shopper is going to buy a pair of shoes from a new designer without trying it on first. This makes for a fundamentally different buying experience. With Designer Shoes for Sale, I have made sure to display stocking and sizing availability for each designer and each shoe. This means consumers can quickly find if I have the correct size in stock and then check other shopping venues such as Ebay and Shopping.com on the same page to make sure my price is rock solid. So I try to make the buying experience re-affirm the fact that they are buying the exact same product they currently have.
5DollarAuctionDeal.com is a site that that has everything that $5 dollars and below at Ebay. Now you can quickly find some of the best deals at Ebay with a simple to use interface. The site updates in real time from Ebay’s web services platfom so that the latest results are available for $5 dollars or less are available.
