Bumbo chair are widely popular among parents. They use it to sit their infant up.
There's now a warning and recall parents need to know about.
Bumbo chairs could pose as a danger for your child. There are reports of children wiggling out and getting hurt, even when the seat is on the floor.
Since 2007, at least 50 incidents have been reported in the United States in which babies fell while the moulded-foam seat was on a raised surface. Nineteen of the incidents included skull fractures, the company and the CPSC said. Another 34 reports have been received of infants hurt while the one-piece seat was on a floor or an unknown elevation. Two babies suffered fractured skulls. Five incidents have been reported in Canada, with three minor injuries
Bumbo International Trust has issued a voluntary recall in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The recall involves about 4 million Bumbo seats in the United States and about 340,000 in Canada.
The seats were made in South Africa and sold at Babies R Us, Sears, Target Corp, Toys R Us, USA Babies, Walmart and other stores and online sellers.
If you have a Bumbo chair, go to Bumbo's website and order a free repair kit. You'll get a seat belt, instructions, and a warning sticker.
