Fall Hazard Prompts Valcobaby Booster Seats Recall
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced that Unique Baby Products voluntarily recalled about 975 of its ValcoBaby “Joey” booster toddler seats for posing a potential fall hazard for young children.
The booster seats for toddlers have a spring button mechanism that secures the booster toddler seat to the baby stroller but the spring can disengage, which creates a possible fall hazard for the carried toddler.
The CPSC has received two reports of a child falling off the booster seat after the seat disengaged from the stroller, though no injuries have been reported.
The recalled product, with batch numbers 3111, 7819, 7822, and 7831 and model number TOD1058, TOD9109, and ZEE0649, was sold at juvenile product stores, websites, and at valcobaby.com through June 2011 to June 2012. The CPSC advises consumers to contact ValcoBaby for product replacement.
