Bumbo Baby Seat Recall Issued

Today, August 15, 2012, Bumbo International Trust has issued a voluntary recall to add a restraint belt and new warnings to the Bumbo Baby Seat. Infants can maneuver out of or fall from the seat, posing a risk of serious injuries.

Immediately stop using the seat until you:

  • Install and always use the restraint belt.
  • Apply the new warning sticker over the existing warning on the back of the Bumbo Baby Seat.
  • Follow all usage instructions and never use the Bumbo Baby Seat on any raised surface.
  • Discontinue use of Bumbo seat cover accessories that interfere with installation of the restraint belt.

  1. oh wow! Thanks for sharing this. We used a Bebe Pod, but my niece has a Bumbo that she’s made a lot of use out of. I personally think if you’re properly supervising your child, they should be ok, and keep the Bumbo off high surfaces where falling would be an issue.

  2. I just saw this on the tonight. How horrible of all the accidents.
