Over 400,000 units of a Baby Einstein activity jumper have been recalled. The retail price was $90 and the product was sold at major retailers, including Toys "R" Us, Target and Amazon, between May of 2012 and May of 2013. The defect involves a sun toy attachment (on the left in the image below), which can rebound with some force and hit children directly in the face. The Safety Commission said that they have received reports of bruising, facial injuries, and even a cracked skull in one case.
“The Consumer Product Safety Commission said today that it has received more than 100 complaints from consumers who bought the product, reporting in excess of 60 injuries to infants.”
Since this is a serious recall — and one that’s actually coming after injuries have been reported – parents are advised make sure that they don’t have the specific model that’s been recalled.
The recalled product is the Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumper, and the specific model number is 90564. If you’re not sure if you own one of the recalled units, find the serial number by checking the tag directly underneath the jumper.
The product itself was supplied by a company called Kids II, and you can reach them at 877-235-7056 to talk to them about getting the problem resolved. The company is reportedly sending new, child safe sun attachments to owners of the recalled Baby Einstein Activity Jumper.
Kids II can be reached toll-free at (877) 325-7056 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at http://www.kidsii.com
