Bumbo Baby Seats Recalled After Infant Skull Fractures
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A popular baby seat is being recalled over serious safety concerns. The Bumbo chair is a molded plastic chair that allows a baby to sit up before the child's own muscles have developed enough to hold the position.
Consumer experts say kids are wiggling out of them and getting hurt, and now four million Bumbo chairs are being recalled. Some injuries have been serious, including skull fractures. The company plans to address the problem by adding restraint belts to the chairs.
Currently the recall is voluntarily and parents who are interested can request a free repair kit on Bumbo's website.
