The CPSC, in conjunction with Canada, announced a voluntary recall on 400,000 Baby Einstein Activity Jumpers due to an infant risk hazard. The “sun” toy attachment on the jumper can rebound with force, posing an impact hazard and injury risk to the infant.

Here’s what you need to know:

So far, 400,000 units have been recalled in the United States and 8,500 units were recalled in Canada. Kids II has received 100 reports of incidents with the product, including 61 injuries that included bruising, lacerations to the face and a 7-month-old baby boy who sustained a skull fracture. An adult reported a chipped tooth from the product.

The model number on the recalled jumpers is 90564. It can be found on a tag attached to the underside of the seat. The stationary activity center has a support seat covered in blue fabric attached to a large while metal frame and it includes a variety of brightly colored toys that surround the seat. The yellow sun toy is attached to the seat frame on a flexible stalk and comes with either three or five brightly covered rings. A date code is located in the lower right corner of the sewn-in label on the back of the blue seat pad. The following date codes have been included in the recall: OD0, OE0, OF0, OG0, OH0, OI0, OJ0, OK0, OL0, OA1, OB1, OC1, OD1, OE1, OF1, OG1, OH1, OI1, OJ1 and OK1.
