Approximately 4 million Bumbo Baby Seats were recalled in mid-August following numerous reports of skull fractures.  According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), infants can wiggle out of the floor seats and fall to the floor.

In October 2007, nearly 1 million Bumbo floor seats were recalled for additional warnings, cautioning against putting the infant seats on tables, kitchen counters or other elevated surfaces.  Since the original recall, the manufacturer–Bumbo International of South Africa–has received at least 50 additional reports of infants falling from the seats while the seats were on raised surfaces.  The CPSC reports that another 34 infants have fallen from the seats while the seats were on the floor.  At least 21 babies suffered fractured skulls as a result of the falls.

The recalled seats were sold at Babies R Us, Target, Walmart, and other retailers from August 2003 through August 2012.
