Hey Bumbo loving baby mamas, bad news in Bumbo land… The beloved baby seat has been recalled. 4 MILLION of them in fact.

Apparently too many parents are not following directions and leaving these seats in places that the Bumbo shouldn’t be.  So what does this mean for all of us Bumbo lovers?  Bumbo will send you a belt for your Bumbo seat with a nice big fat sticker (warning label) on it.

Here are the details from the company:

August 15, 2012 – Bumbo International Trust is conducting 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. Working closely with the CPSC, Bumbo has

determined that the potential safety issue can be readily corrected in the home by adding a restraint belt. In addition, Bumbo is providing a new warning sticker for consumers to attach to the seat to re-emphasize existing warnings against use of the seat on any raised surfaces.

Consumers should stop using their Bumbo Baby Seats immediately, and complete the order form to obtain a free Repair Kit. The kit includes a belt with a new warning sticker, installation instructions, proper use instructions and a new warning sticker. There is no need for consumers to return the Bumbo Baby Seats.

Consumers should take the following actions in conjunction with this voluntary recall:

  • 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.

  1. I loved our Bumbo! and I honestly just don’t understand how some people are mad at the Bumbo people because they sat their kids in it on an elevated space and then they fell off. What?!?!?!? And that’s the Bumbo’s fault? I guess it’s the world we live in 🙂
    PS MISS YOU!!!

  2. It is sad to see a BABY PRODUCT that is unsafe! Mourning for the babies that where injured. I swear by Soft Gear, American made product that my kids and I love!
