Evenflo ExerSaucer Activity Center Recall: Potential Fall Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Evenflo Co. Inc. have issued a recall for about 213,000 ExerSaucer Triple Fun Stationary Activity Centers, as a defect in the product could allow a young child to fall and sustain an injury when it is used as an activity table.
The Evenflo ExerSaucer recall was announced on February 17, 2009, applying to Activity Centers sold between October 2006 and February 2009 for about $120.
The product can be used in three different stages, and the defect is present when it is used in the third stage as an activity table. The end cap on one side of the activity table may come loose and fall off, potentially causing a young child to fall.

Evenflo has received at least 11 reports of problems with the Exercaucer Triple Fun stationary activity centers, including 9 reports of injury. In one case, a child in Canada suffered a broken collarbone after falling when the cap on the end dislodged.
When it is used as an activity table, the recalled ExerSaucers are shaped like an ‘S’ on top of four legs. Various activities for toddlers are arranged along the length of the table, including brightly colored flowers, bees, rings and animals for visual and tactile stimulation.
Evenflo manufactured the product between October 2006 and December 2008, and it contains model number 6231711. They were sold throughout the United States at mass merchandise stores like Toys ‘R Us and Burlington Coat Factory Baby Depot.
Parents have been urged to immediately stop using the Evenflo ExerSaucer activity table in Stage 3 and to contact the manufacturer at (800) 233-5921 for a free replacement end cap. Evenflo indicates that the product may continue to be used in Stages 1 and 2 without any changes.
