Voluntary Recall of Bumbo® Baby Seats
Bumbo has issued a voluntary recall of their Bumbo® Baby Seats that have been sold in the US. The recall is due to a recent discovery that infants can easily move around while in the seat, and therefore, can fall out of the seat and hurt themselves.
As a remedy to this safety problem, the company is asking consumers to fix the problem at home with an easy do-it-at-home repair kit. This repair kit is free, and includes a restraining belt and a new warning sticker consumers can place on the back of the seat.
According to the Bumbo recall site, these seats have been sold from August 2003 until this month, August 2012, and have been priced anywhere from $30-50.
If you want to determine whether or not you have purchased this product, they have made a website dedicated to describing what to look for. If you find out you have purchased this product, stop using it until you can add the restraining belt. Also on their website, they provide easy-to-install instructions and an FAQ to assist with any further confusion you may be having.
It’s crucial you take the right steps to ensure the protection and security of your little one, so explore the site and follow all their safety precautions.
