The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has reported that nearly 4 million Bumbo Baby Seats are being recalled because of close to two dozen reports of infant skull fractures if a baby wiggles out of the seat.
About one million of the seats were recalled in October 2007 to add warning labels against placing teh seats on raised surfaces, such as tables or counters.
Since the 2007 recall, the CPSC and Bumbo International of South Africa have received reports of at least 50 incidents in which babies fell from Bumbo seats while on raised surfaces. Another 34 babies fell from the seats when they were being used on the floor. There have been a total of 21 reports of infant skull fractures.
Consumers are urged to stop using the seat immediately and to contact Bumbo for a free repair kit that includes a restraint belt and instructions on how to safely use the seat. To receive a repair kit, call Bumbo at 866-898-4999 or visit www.recall.BumboUSA.com.
The floor seats were sold nationwide between August 2003 through August 2012 at Babies R Us, Target, Walmart, and other retailers.
