Baby Einstein Jumpers Recalled Due to Injury Risk for Infants

More than 400,000 Baby Einstein infant activity jumpers have been recalled, following more than 60 reports of injuries, including one infant who suffered a fractured skull.  

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the Baby Einstein Jumper recall on July 23, due to problems with the “sun” toy attachment, which can rebound with substantial force and cause a serious injury for the infant.

At least 100 reports of problems have been received by the importer, Kids II Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia, including at least 61 cases resulting in bruises, facial lacerations, chipped teeth and other injuries suffered by infants and adults. The most serious injury involved a lineal skull fracture suffered by a 7-month-old boy.

The recall affects about 400,000 Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumpers sold in the U.S. with model number 90564. Another 8,500 were sold in Canada and are also being recalled.

The jumpers are stationary activity centers with a support seat covered in blue fabric, a large white metal frame and a variety of brightly colored toys arrayed around the seat. The model number is located on a tag attached to the bottom of the seat. A sewn in label on the back of the blue seat pad has one of the following date codes located in the lower right corner: OD0, OE0, OF0, OG0, OH0, OI0, OJ0, OK0, OL0, OA1, OB1, OC1, OD1, OE1, OF1, OG1, OH1, OI1, OJ1 and OK1.

The sun toy linked to the injuries is a yellow sun attached to the seat frame. It is on a flexible stalk with three or five brightly colored rings.

The Baby Einstein jumpers were sold at Target, Toys R Us and other retail stores nationwide between May 2010 and May 2013 for about $90. They were also sold online through Amazon.com.

The CPSC recommends that anyone who has purchased the recalled jumpers call Kids II toll-free at (877) 325-7056 for a free replacement. They can also visit the company’s website at www.kidsii.com.
