Bumbo Baby Seats Recall

Product Name: Bumbo Baby Seats

Description: The bottom of the Bumbo seat is round and flat with a diameter of about 38 centimetres (15 inches). It is constructed of a single piece of molded foam and comes in various colors. The seat has leg holes and seat back that wraps completely around the child.

Units: 341,991 units of the recalled seats were sold in Canada.

Manufacturer: Bumbo International, of South Africa

Importer: Oyaco Products Inc., of Calgary Alberta

Hazard: Infants can arch their backs and flip or maneuver out of the Bumbo seat, posing a risk of serious injuries or fall.

In the United States, CPSC and Bumbo International know of at least 50 incidents after the October 2007 voluntary recall in which babies fell from a Bumbo seat while it was being used on a raised surface. Nineteen of those incidents included reports of skull fractures. CPSC and Bumbo International are aware of an additional 31 post-recall reports of infants who fell out or maneuvered out of a Bumbo seat used on the floor or at an unknown elevation, resulting in injury. Two of these incidents involved reports of skull fractures, while others reported bumps, bruises, and other minor injuries.

Manufactured in: South Africa

Corrective actions: Consumers should register to obtain the free retrofit kit, which includes a belt with a warning label, installation instructions, safe use instructions and a new warning sticker. Register for the retrofit kit by calling 1-866-477-5144 between 8 AM and 5 PM MT Monday through Friday or visit Bumbo Canada's website at www.bumbocanada.com. Do not return the Bumbo seat to retailers as they will not be able to provide the repair kit.
