Bumbo Baby Seats Recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall of Bumbo Baby Seats after nearly two dozen reports of infant skull fractures have been reported. The recall affects 4 million baby seats which were sold nationwide at retailers like Target, Sears, Toys ‘R’ Us, Babies ‘R’ Us and Wal-Mart.

In 2007, Bumbo recalled over 1 million of the popular Baby Seats to provide additional warnings against use on raised surfaces. Since the first recall, CPSC and Bumbo International have learned of at least 50 incidents in which babies fell from Bumbo seats while they were used on raised surfaces. In total, 21 incidents of skull fractures to infants have been reported between the two recalls.

The company released a statement advising consumers they are adding a restraint belt to enhance the safety of children using the Bumbo seat. “The restraint belt will help prevent children from getting out of or falling from the seat when it is used as intended: on the floor with adult supervision and never on raised surfaces,” said the statement.

Consumers should immediately stop using the product until they order and install a free repair kit, which includes a restraint belt with a warning label, installation instructions, safe use instructions and a new warning sticker.
