Recall - UPDATE re: Bumbo Baby Seats

The following Recall Update is from HSW:


Event Update: Health Canada reports of a recall involving Bumbo Baby Seats (please review all tabs for changes). Infants can arch their backs and flip or maneuver out of the Bumbo seat, posing a risk of serious injuries or fall.

See HSW Products tab for specifics on the affected items (including additional photos).


Since the 2007 recall to provide warnings against use on raised surfaces, Health Canada has received 5 reports of Canadian incidents related to the use of these products, with three reports resulting in minor injury.
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.

Sold at: various children's stores nationwide and online retailers from August 2003 through August 2012.
Corrective Action: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 (see "Consumer Contact" below).
Consumers should take the following actions in conjunction with this recall:
• Install and always use the retrofit belt.
• Apply the new warning sticker over the existing warning on the back of the Bumbo seat.
• Follow all usage instructions and never use the Bumbo seat on an elevated surface, even with the belt.
