Child Booster Seat Recall

Target has issued a recall of 43, 000 Circo Booster Seats because the booster seat restraint buckle can open unexpectedly causing the child to fall and suffer injury. The recall was issued after Target received reports of children falling from the booster seats after the buckle opened. Three of the reports involved injury to the children. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, “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.” The seats are manufactured in China and have been sold at Target stores nationwide for $13. The Consumer Product Safety Commission urges consumers to stop using the booster seats.
