Listen up moms and dads! Four million Bumbo baby seats have been recalled, and if you have one, the Consumer Product Safety Commission is saying you should stop using it immediately! There have been 21 reports of skull fractures. The seats have been recalled because babies can maneuver out of or fall from the seat, posing a risk of serious injury.
This follows an October 2007 recall of one million Bumbo seats due to babies falling from seats in use on a raised surface. Since that recall, there have been 50 additional reported incidents of falls from a raised surface, 19 resulting in skull fractures. An additional 34 injuries were reported while the seat was being used on the floor, 2 involving skull fractures.
The seats in today’s recall were sold at Sears, Target, Toys R Us (including Babies R Us), USA Babies, Walmart, and various other toy and children’s stores nationwide, as well as at numerous online sellers.
