Bumbo Recall: Baby Seats Recalled Due to Fall Hazard

South African company Bumbo International is voluntarily recalling up to 4 million Bumbo baby seats after consumer safety reports indicated that their product might be dangerous and pose a serious hazard to infants.

The recall is one of the largest involving a children’s product in recent months, and is the second such recall in five years involving the iconic Bumbo baby seat. In 2007, federal regulators and Bumbo International Trust recalled approximately 1 million of the seats and warned consumers that babies could potentially fall from the seats and injure themselves, even when using the product as recommended.

Since the first recall in 2007, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Bumbo International Trust have confirmed that they are aware of at least 50 separate incidents in which babies fell from a Bumbo seat while it was being used on a raised or elevated surface. Nineteen of those incidents are known to have resulted in a skull fractures.

Parents and owners of the distinctive molded foam seats are being urged to stop using the product immediately and contact Bumbo International for a free repair kit, which includes a seatbelt and anchors to attach the belt to the seat.

The recalled Bumbo baby chair has been widely available in the United States since 2003 and was sold at a large number of retail stores including Sears, Target, Toys R Us (including Babies R Us), USA Babies and Walmart.

Burg Simpson can help with the Bumbo baby seat recall.
