More than four million Bumbo Baby Seats are being recalled in North America _ including about 342-thousand in Canada _ after reports of infant skull fractures.
Health Canada says babies can arch their backs and flip or manoeuvre out of the Bumbo floor seat, posing a risk of serious injuries or fall.
About one million of the moulded foam seats were recalled in October 2007 for additional warning labels against placing the Bumbo seats on tables or kitchen counters.
Health Canada says since that recall it has received five reports of incidents related to the seats, three of them resulting in minor injury.
Canadian consumers are asked to stop using the seats and contact Bumbo for a free repair kit that includes a restraint belt and instructions on how to safely use the seat.
The repair kit can be ordered by visiting www-dot-bumbocanada-dot-com or calling 1-866-477-5144.
