The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled Bumbo baby seats on Wednesday after receiving child injury reports following a 2007 Bumbo recall.
In October 2007, Bumbo recalled one million baby seats to add warnings about use on raised surfaces.
CPSC and Bumbo International Trust, of South Africa have received about 50 post-recall reports of children falling from Bumbo seats that were on raised surfaces since the initial 2007 recall. An additional 34 reports of infants maneuvering out of the seats have been received. Some injury reports were minor, while others were more severe causing skull fractures.
About 4 million Bumbo baby seats were sold in the U.S.
The Bumbo seats were sold at Sears, Target, Toys “R” Us, Babies “R” Us, USA Babies, Wal-Mart and various nationwide toy and children’s stores from August 2003 through August 2012.
The recalled baby seats have the words: "Manufactured by Bumbo South Africa Material: Polyurethane World Patent No. PCT: ZA/1999/00030" located on the bottom. The back of the seat has several warnings. The front of the seat has a label warning against use on raised surfaces that has been added to seats manufactured since 2008.
