Kids II, an Atlanta-based manufacturer of toddler products, said it is recalling more than 400,000 Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumpers in the U.S and Canada. The “sun” toy attachment on the activity jumper can rebound with force and injure the infant.
Kids II has received 100 reports of incidents, including 61 injuries, according to news website Consumer Affairs. Reported injuries include bruises, lacerations to the face, a 7-month-old boy who sustained a lineal skull fracture and a chipped tooth to an adult.
The Kids II recall includes yellow sun toys made before November 2011 with the model number 90564. The model number can be found on a tag attached to the underside of the seat.
The Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumpers are classified as stationary activity centers and have a support seat covered in blue fabric attached to a large white metal frame and include a variety of brightly colored toys surrounding the seat. The problematic yellow sun toy is attached to the seat frame on a flexible stalk with either three or five brightly colored rings.
A date code is also located in the lower right corner of the sewn in label on the back of the blue seat pad. The following date codes, indicating a manufacture date prior to November 2011, are included in the recall: OD0, OE0, OF0, OG0, OH0, OI0, OJ0, OK0, OL0, OA1, OB1, OC1, OD1, OE1, OF1, OG1, OH1, OI1, OJ1 and OK1.
Consumer Affairs reports that Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumpers were manufactured in China and sold at Target, Toys R Us and other retails stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com between May 2010 and May 2013.
Kids II is informing its customers that if they have a product that is being recalled to immediately stop using the product.
