BebeLove USA, in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has announced a recall of about 3,600 BebeLove Baby Walkers. The recalled walkers have failed to meet federal safety standards, specifically style numbers 358 and 368.
One version, style number 358, can fit through an average doorway and is not designed to stop at the edge of a step, both of which are in violation of the federal safety standards. The other style, style number 368, contains leg openings that could allow a child to slip down until the child’s head becomes entrapped at the neck. Both baby walkers have the potential to cause babies serious injuries or death.
Sold for babies aged 6 months or older, the recalled BebeLove walkers contain a plastic-covered foam padded seat with a plastic base and toy tray. The two styles involved in the recall, style number 358 and 368, have white stoppers on the bottom of the base of the walker and model numbers printed on albel on the rear bottom inside of the base. Model 358 features a white toy bar with printed solid colored seats while model 368 features a yellow toy bar with printed patterned seats.
The recalled walkers were sold in the following color combinations:
|Product Name||Model Number||Color|
|BebeLove Baby Walker||358 (white toy bar)||Pink Base with White TrayBlue Base with White TrayGreen Base with White Tray|
|BebeLove Baby Walker||368 (yellow toy bar)||Blue Base with Yellow TrayPink Base With White TrayPurple Base with Pink Tray|
From November 2011 through July 2013, the recalled baby walkers were sold in Arizona, California and Utah at small retail stores and online at Amazon.com and Overstock.com for about $25. The manufacturing was done in Taiwan and China.
