Target Circo Child Booster Seat Recall Expanded

About 375,000 Circo child booster seats sold at Target have been recalled because of a defective restraint, which could allow a child to fall out and hurt themselves. 

The Target booster seat recall was originally announced in August 2009, but was expanded on June 15 in an announcement by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) because Target has received at least 10 new reports of the seat belts unexpectedly opening, three of which led to minor child injuries. Those are in addition to the eight reports of buckles opening and three minor injuries that led to the original recall.

The original recall only included 43,000 Circo booster seats. However, the latest announcement expands the recall to 375,000.

All Circo Booster seats sold at Target since 2005 are included in the recall. The child seats are made of blue plastic with green trim and a white plastic buckle. They are designed to attach to an adult chair and elevate a child so they can sit at the table. The seats have the words “Circo” and “Booster Seat” on a green label on the front.

The recalled booster seats were sold at Target stores across the United States from January 2005 through June 2009 for about $13. The seats were made in China.

The CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using the recalled Target Circo booster seats and return them to any Target store for a full refund. Customers with questions can visit the company’s website at or call Target at 1-800-440-0680.
