Submitted by by Gina on

Bumbo International Trust is voluntarily recalling about 4 million Bumbo Baby Seats after scores of injuries, including skull fractures, the South African company and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said on Wednesday.

Since a 2007 recall, at least 50 incidents have been reported in which babies fell while the molded-foam seat was on a raised surface. Nineteen of the incidents included skull fractures, the company and the CPSC said in a statement.

Another 34 reports have been received of infants hurt while the one-piece seat was on a floor or an unknown elevation. Two babies suffered fractured skulls.

People with the seats are urged to stop using them until they install a repair kit.
