The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Target announced on June 15, 2011 the voluntary expansion of the Circo booster seat recall after receiving additional reports of injuries. The recall covers approximately 375,000 Circo child booster seats, including 43,000 booster seats that were originally recalled in 2009.
The booster seat was recalled because of reports that the restraint buckle can open unexpectedly, which can result in the child falling out of the seat and becoming injured. Target has received reports of 10 additional incidents of the buckle becoming unhooked, including three reports of the child suffering from bumps and bruises after falling from the booster seat.
The recall includes all Circo booster seats sold between January 2005 and June 2009. The booster seats are blue with green trim and a white plastic restraint buckle. The booster seat attaches to a chair and allows a child to sit at a table more comfortably.
