In late July, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, BabySwede LLC, of Cleveland, OH. and BabyBjörn AB, of Sweden recalled 6,500 BabyBjörn® Babysitter Balance and BabyBjörn® Babysitter Balance Air bouncer chairs. Small, sharp metal objects found in the padded area of the bouncer chair can protrude, posing a laceration hazard to children.
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. Recalled models and colors are:
BabyBjörn® Babysitter Balance:
Black/Red; Model #009064US
Black/Silver; Model #009065US
Dark Blue/Blue; Model #009066US
Brown/Beige; Model #009069US
BabyBjörn® Babysitter Balance Air:
White; Model 009001US
The products were sold at 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 for about $190. They were made in Sweden.
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.
