Baby Seats Recalled Due to 21 Cracked Skulls

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall of four million Bumbo baby seats because they can be dangerous.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said at least 84 babies have fallen out of the molded foam seats while on the floor, but most on raised surfaces — 21 breaking their skulls.

“I like the Bumbo because it teaches her kinda how to sit up,” said Andrea Herbert, mother of four-month-old Emerson. “The first time I put her in it, I was like, wait, where’s the safety belt?”

The baby seats are no longer being sold at Target or anywhere else.

The company is asking parents to visit http://recall.bumbousa.com and order a free repair kit, which includes a restraint belt, installation instructions and a new warning sticker.
