Bumbo International announced a voluntary recall of Bumbo baby seats because babies can wiggle or fall out of them. Consumers are asked to stop using the product immediately, and order and install a free repair kit. The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Bumbo International know of at least 50 incidents since a previous recall in which babies fell from a Bumbo seat that was on a raised surface. Nineteen of those incidents include reports of skull fractures. Bumbo baby seats are sold at Babies R Us, Sears, Target, Toys R Us, Walmart, and other toy and children's stores.
Consumers should also immediately stop using Bumbo seat covers that interfere with the installation and use of the belt. A video demonstrating proper installation of the restraint belt and proper use of the Bumbo seat are available at www.BumboUSA.com
Consumer Contact: Order the free repair kit by visiting www.recall.BumboUSA.com or calling (866) 898-4999 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Thursday and between 8 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. CT on Friday. Do not return the Bumbo seat to retailers as they will not be able to provide the repair kit.
