Baby Seats Recalled




Baby Seats Recalled

A recent unsafe product recall was issued regarding one million baby seats that have been sold by Target Corp, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., and other large retailers.

According to reports, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling the seats after data has shown that young children have been falling out of them.

Seats Causing Infant Injuries

The agency has received at least 28 reports of young children falling out of the seats.

Three cases of babies fracturing their skulls after the seats were placed atop tables have also been reported.

The seats are supposedly designed for infants six weeks to about 14-months-old.

Need for Updated Warning Labels

The seats, which are manufactured by Bumbo International of South Africa, have been sold from August 2003 through October 2007.

The seats are about 15 inches in diameter and are made with molded foam, which wraps around children.

Bumbo has said on its website that they have temporarily stopped selling the seats until safety packaging and warnings can be updated.

The company has said that they want to ensure that all necessary safety guidelines are updated before they continue to sell the product.

Those who already own the seat have been urged to contact Bumbo and obtain a warning label and new instruction containing the risks.

Parents are also warned not to set the seat on tables, countertops or chairs.
