Caption: Researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital have conducted the largest and longest study of high chair injuries among children in the US, and have found that these injuries are on the rise. The researchers analyzed more than 75,000 cases between 2003-2010, and found that the number of injuries to children associated with high chairs during this time surged more than 22 percent. Part of the problem is that nearly three and a half million faulty high chairs and booster seats have been recalled in the last five years alone. This video shows tips for parents on what to watch out for to make sure their child is safe.
