Suntech Enterprises, Inc. is recalling approximately 8,400 baby walkers because the walkers can fit through standard doorways and “fail to have sufficient stair-fall protection to prevent falls down stairs.” So far, according to the company, no injuries have been reported. As of December 21, 2010, all baby walkers will be required by law to be either too wide to fit through standard doorways or “have features, such as a gripping mechanism, to stop the walker at the edge of a step,” according to a mandatory rule the CPSC issued in May 2010.
The baby walkers have a plastic frame supported by four wheels and eight brake pads, according to the CPSC. The walkers were sold in blue, pink, and green with a white activity tray and patterned, vinyl seat. Item number WK110 or WK112 is printed on the side of the packaging. The recalled walkers were manufactured in China and were sold at children’s product stores in California, Illinois, New York and Texas from January 2007 through December 2009 for between $25 and $30. Suntech and the CPSC are advising consumers to immediately stop using the recalled walkers and bring them to the store where purchased for a full refund.
