in Buffalo Defective Products - Product Liability

Keeping infants safe from dangerous or defective products is an important issue.  Buffalo residents should be aware that a recall was recently issued for approximately four million baby seats manufactured by Bumbo International of South Africa.  These molded foam floor seats were sold at Babies R Us, Target, Walmart and other retailers throughout the U.S. from August 2003 through August 2012.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, babies can wiggle out of these seats.  An earlier recall in 2007 involved about one million of the seats being recalled for the placement of additional warning labels about setting the seats on elevated surfaces such as tables.  Following the first recall, Bumbo and the Consumer Product Safety Commission have learned of at least fifty incidents involving infants falling from the chairs while on an elevated surface and another thirty-four falls from floor level or an unknown height.

There have been 21 reports of infants suffering skull fractures from the falls.

If you have one of these baby seats, you should stop using it immediately and contact Bumbo.  The company is providing a free repair kit with a restraint belt and additional instructions on safe use of the baby seat. This kit can be ordered at or calling the company at 866-898-4999.
