According to the US Product Safety Commission, this latest recall, (http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml08/08046.html) comes after 28 reports of injuries were brought to light detailing young children whom had accidentally fallen from the seat. Three of the incidents mentioned caused skull fractures on the infants when the chairs were placed on tables.
The Bumbo baby seat was sold between 2003 and 2007 for approximately $40. Additional retailers, Kmart, USA Babies, Toys "R" Us, and Sears Holding also periodically stocked and sold the Bumbo Baby Seat.
Consumers should contact Bumbo to obtain new warning label stickers and instructions for the recalled baby seats and should never use the infant seat on a table, countertop, chair or other elevated surface, the agency said.
On its Web site, Bumbo said it temporarily stopped selling the baby seat until safety packaging can be updated. "The Bumbo Baby Seat is safe when used properly, but we have voluntarily agreed to update the packaging to ensure there is no confusion about the safe, proper use of the Bumbo Baby Seat," the company said.
