400,000 Baby Einstein activity jumpers recalled

Posted: Updated:

A major recall has been announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

An estimated 400,000 Baby Einstein musical motion activity jumpers are being pulled back because of an impact hazard.

The "sun" toy attachment on the seat frame of the jumper can snap backward and rebound with force, causing the baby or toddler to be hurt.

The facts show there have been 100 reports of incidents, including 61 injuries. They ranged from bruises to a skull fracture in one case.

The activity jumpers, with the model number 9-0-5-6-4, were sold at Target, Toys 'R Us and other retail stores nationwide.

They were also sold online at Amazon.com.

People are asked to stop using the product immediately and contact Kids II for a replacement toy attachment.
