About 375,000 Circo Child Booster Seats have been recalled by Target, of Minneapolis, Minn. And 43,000 additional booster seats were recalled in August 2009.
The booster seat’s restraint buckle can open unexpectedly, allowing a child to fall from the chair and be injured. Target says it has received ten additional reports of booster seat buckles opening unexpectedly, including three reports of a child falling forward out of the booster seat, hitting an object or the floor.
The expanded recall involves all Circo Booster Seats, including those sold as early as 2005. The plastic booster seats are blue with green trim and a white plastic restraint buckle. They attach to an adult chair to boost a child to a table. “Circo” and “Booster Seat” can be found on a green label located in the front of the booster seat. The seats were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide from January 2005 through June 2009 for about $13. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled booster seats and return them to any Target store for a full refund.
