Bumbo Baby Seat Recall
The popular Bumbo baby seat is being voluntarily recalled because babies have fallen out of them fracturing their skulls. About 4 million of the seats have been sold in the U.S. More than 100 incidents of babies being injured by falling out of the baby seats have been reported in the U.S.
If you have a Bumbo baby seat stop using it until you get a free repair kit. Don’t return the baby seat to the store. The recall is not pulling the product off the market but adding a safety feature…basically a seat belt. Owners of Bumbo baby seats should go to www.bumbousa.com to get the free repair kit.
To safely use the Bumbo baby seat:
-always use the restraint belt
-only use the seat on the floor or level ground surface
-never use on elevated surfaces such as chairs or tables
-never leave the child unattended
-never use the seat in or near water
Remember a baby’s head is his heaviest part of his body. When he loses his balance, his head often hits the floor first.
