An increase of child injures relating to the Bumbo Baby Seats led the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to issue a recall for approximately 4 million of the infant chairs Wednesday.
The CPSC has received multiple reports of child injuries in recent months. According to news reports, there have been at least 84 incidents of children falling from the seats, leading to more than 20 reports of skull fractures in children. The South African-based Bumbo International, who are the manufacturers of the Bumbo Baby Seats, says they will be providing owners of the seats with a repair kit to add a strap that will secure children into the seat.
The CPSC can recall a product even if it is not covered by a safety standard, as was the case with the Bumbo Baby Seats. The seats cost between $30 and $50 each and were sold at stores including Walmart, Sears, Target, Toys R Us and Babies R Us between August 2003 and August 2012.
