Bumbo infant seat being recalled across North America

Bumbo infant seat being recalled across North America

I have to wonder is this more of a case of neglectful parenting assuming that a seat will keep their infant safe while they step away. Otherwise, how does an infant come out of a chair like this and crack their skull.

It was found that infants could arch their back and flip or maneuver out of the Bumbo seat, causing injury or falling out. Some of the cases were of infants being placed on tables instead of the floor as recommended. Regardless, it is for this reason that unless a baby is in their crib sleeping they should not be left unattended in a chair, highchair, change table or anything where they could potentially fall. It only takes a second.....Personally not sure the safety kit will stop infants from being injured...but that is my opinion.

The South African company issued the voluntary recall today and recommends the following:

Consumers should take the following actions in conjunction with this voluntary recall:

  • Install and always use the restraint belt.

  • Apply the new warning sticker over the existing warning on the back of the Bumbo Baby Seat.

  • Follow all usage instructions and never use the Bumbo Baby Seat on any raised surface,
