The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a voluntary recall of BabyBjörn® Babysitter Balance and BabyBjörn® Babysitter Balance Air bouncer chairs. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. There are about 6,500 of the chairs which were manufactured by BabyBjörn AB of Sweden and imported by BabySwede LLC of Cleveland, OH. Small, sharp metal objects found in the padded area of the bouncer chair can protrude, posing a laceration hazard to children. Thus far no incidents or injuries have been reported. The recall involves the BabyBjörn’s Babysitter Balance and Babysitter Balance Air bouncers. These bouncing chairs for babies have a red safety latch on the height adjustment mechanism and a plastic footrest with the BabyBjörn® logo.
The chairs were sold by baby product retailers and various mass merchants nationwide, online retailers and catalogs from September, 2008 through July, 2009. The Babysitter Balance sold for about $170, and the Babysitter Balance Air sold for about $190.
Consumers should immediately stop using both Babysitter Balance and Babysitter Balance Air bouncer chairs and contact BabySwede LLC for instructions on how to return the recalled products for inspection and relabeling. If any metal pieces are found through inspection, the consumer will be provided with a new BabyBjörn® Babysitter Balance product. For additional information, please contact BabySwede, LLC toll-free at (866) 424-0200 anytime, or visit the manufacturer’s Web site at www.babyswede.com.
