Oh No, Bumbo! 4 Million Baby Seats Recalled

Bumbo International Trust just announced that they are voluntarily recalling about 4 million of their popular infant floor seats; after almost two dozen infant skull fractures have been reported.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says babies can wiggle out of the floor seat, causing the baby to fall.The Bumbo seat is a molded foam seat that allows babies that are not yet strong enough to sit up on their own, to sit up with the assistance¬† of the Bumbo’s specially designed seat. The technically designed seat allows babies to sit up and interact with their surroundings, as soon as the baby has proper head control.

Unfortunately, this is not the first recall Bumbo has ever issued. Back in 2007, about 1 million of the floor seats were recalled so additional warning labels could be applied to the chair stating that the seat should never be used on raised surfaces, such as tables or counter tops.

Consumers are being asked to cease use of the Bumbo seat and contact Bumbo to resquest a free repair kit that will include a restraining belt, warning stickers,  and new instruction manual.
