A recall involving some 400,000 Circo Child Booster Seats has been issued as of May, 2011, reports say.
Reports say the seat has a restraint buckle that may open unexpectedly, allowing a child to fall from the chair and be injured. To date, Target has received 10 additional reports of booster seat buckles opening unexpectedly, including three reports of bumps and/or bruises when a child fell forward out of the booster seat and hit either an object or the floor.
The recall of the seats was implemented by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, reports say and involves the Circo Child Booster seats, which were manufactured in China and imported and sold at Target stores nationwide from January 2005 through June 2009, reports say. The seats are blue with green trim and a white plastic restraint buckle. The words "Circo" and "Booster Seat" can be found on a green label located in the front of the seat.
CPSC officials are advising consumers to discontinue use of the affected seats and return them to any Target store for a full refund.
