Bumbo foam "floor" seats for babies, sold at Babies R Us, Target, and Walmart, among others, from August 2003 through August 2012, have been recalled by Bumbo International of South Africa, in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
There have been at least 50 incidents where babies have fallen out of the seats from raised surfaces. The seats were reportedly designed to be used on the floor, There have been 21 reports of skull fractures to babies. The CPSC states that there have been another 34 reports of babies falling from the seats while they were on the floor or an unknown elevation.
According to Bumbo and the CPSC, babies can wiggle out of the seats. Bumbo is apparently going to install a restraint belt to prevent the latter from occurring.
Consumers should stop using the seats and request a "repair kit" at http://www.recall.BumboUSA.com or by calling 866-898-4999.
