The first week in August, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Target recalled 43,000 Circo Booster Seats. This is especially troubling as Minnesota just passed a law requiring the age and weight be considered in protection more children. The booster seat restraint buckle can open unexpectedly, allowing a child to fall from the chair and be injured.
This recall involves Circo booster seats with manufacture date codes XJ0811, XJ0812, XJ0901, and XJ0902. The plastic booster seat is blue with green trim and has white straps. The manufacture date code is printed on the backside of the seat next to the consumer warning information. “Circo” can be found on a label located in the front of the seat. Target stores nationwide from December 2008 through June 2009 for about $13. The seats were made in China.
Consumers should immediately stop using the booster seat and return the item to the nearest Target store to receive a full refund. Consumers can contact Target at (800) 440-0680 or visit the firm’s Web site at www.target.com.
