Baby chairs manufactured by Bumbo have been recalled by the American Consumer Product Safety Commission following concerns about their safety. The chairs are sold in Ireland by various retailers and are popular for babies aged between 3 and 10 months.
The chairs have been found to be unstable when used by active children and serious injuries have sustained by children when the chairs have been rocked from side-to-side or leant backwards
Parents in Ireland have been advised to avoid sitting their children in the chairs until they have received a restraint from the vendor that sold them the chair. The recall does not apply to Ireland at the moment but if your child has suffered an injury as a result of the chair you are advised to speak with a personal injury solicitor as you may be entitled to compensation.
