Voluntary Bumbo Recall

Hello folks! I have a ton of updates and posts to make about Hubster's R&R and our cruise but I wanted to post this really quickly for those Bumbo owners out there.

A recall was announced today for Bumbo seats because of the possibility of children severely injuring themselves by wiggling out of the seat. Bumbo owners can go to to determine if their seat is on the recall list and order a repair kit.

The product subject to the recall can be identified in several ways:
  • On the front of the seat in raised lettering is the word "Bumbo" with the image of an elephant on top.
  • The bottom of the seat has the following words: "Manufactured by Bumbo South Africa Material: Polyurethane World Patent No. PCT: ZA/1999/00030." The back of the seat has several warnings, and seats manufactured since 2008 also have warnings on the front of the seat against use on raised surfaces.
The free repair kit includes a safety restraint which will have to be installed by the consumer as well as a new warning label which reemphasizes not to use your Bumbo on a raised surface.
