Audio clip:

Bumbo baby seats – about four million of them – are being recalled.  This has happened before.

(Filip) “Bumbo baby seat was recalled back in 2007, at which time we had several incidents that children having skull fractures, falling from the chair.  And, since then, that warning label has not significantly decreased the number of incidents.”

…Alex Filip of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.  It turns out the little ones have found a way to squirm out of ‘em, so the folks at Bumbo are adding a seat belt.

(Filip) “People should contact Bumbo right away, and get the restraint belt.  It’s very easy to install, they’ve got videos on their website that shows you how to do that.”

The Bumbos were sold at Babies ‘R’ Us, Target, Walmart and other retailers nationwide from August of ’03 ’til present.
