Recall Alert! BebeLove Baby Walkers
The CPSC and BebeLove announced a recall on 3,600 BebeLove baby walkers because they failed to meet the federal safety standard. The recall includes model numbers 358 and 368. The specific style number (358) was not made to fit through a standard doorway and wasn’t designed stop at the edge of a step (as is required by the federal standard). Also, style number 368 contains leg openings that allow children to slip down, potentially entrapping their neck. To date, no injuries and incidents have been reported.
Here’s what you should know:
The recall includes all BebeLove walkers that were sold for babies 6 months and older. They contain a plastic-covered foam padded seat with a plastic base and toy tray. The 358 models have a green, pink or orange musical tray with a white toy bar and solid colored seats. The 368 model comes with a green, pink or white musical tray with a yellow toy bar and printed patterned seats. Both models have white stoppers at the bottom of the base of the walker and model numbers printed on a labor near the bottom of the base. “BEBELOVE” is printed on the back of the seat and on the base of the walkers.
