Baby Einstein Activity Jumper Recalled; 61 Babies Injured
The Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumper (Model No. 90564) has been recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. An apparent product design defect has injured 61 children as they played with the interactive toys that surround the stationary jumper’s fabric seat. The most commonly reported injuries were facial lacerations and bruises; however, one 7-month-old boy sustained a serious lateral skull fracture.
To prevent injury to their children, the CPSC recommends that parents stop using this defective product immediately. Full information about the Baby Einstein activity jumper recall is available on the CPSC website.
Made in China, more than 400,000 of the $90 Baby Einstein activity jumpers were sold nationwide between 2010 and May 2013. In St. Louis the jumpers were available at Target, Toys R Us and online at Amazon.com.
Baby Einstein is a respected manufacturer of products for infants and children that has gained the trust of American parents; but it is not the first trusted toy maker the CPSC has called to account. In 2009 Mattel was fined $2.3 million after a recall of 2 million children’s toys from its popular Fisher-Price line. Also manufactured in China, the toys were found to contain unacceptable levels of lead paint.
