It was just announced yesterday that Target is recalling Circo Child Booster Seats. The company is recalling approximately 375,000 booster seats and it is worth noting that 43,000 units of this same product were recalled in August 2009. As a Weston Products Liability Injury Lawyer, I felt that this recall needed to be discussed because of the potential for children to suffer injuries. The product is being recalled because the restraint buckle can unexpectedly open, which could lead to a child falling from the chair.
According to the CPSC Target Circo Child Booster Seat Recall Release, there have been ten additional reports of the buckles unexpectedly opening since the August 2009 recall. This includes three reports of children suffering bumps and/or bruises as a result of falling from the booster seat. As a Weston Injury Attorney, these reports of children suffering injuries are what caught my attention and prompted me to write about this very serious recall. Moreover, the sheer size of this recall, 375,000 units, is noteworthy as well.
As a Weston Products Liability Injury Attorney, and more importantly, as a parent, I can say that we trust that any product designed for children will function properly and safely. When something like this happens where the products we trust actually cause our children harm, there is a serious safety issue. A product recall is the only way to remove these defective products from the marketplace and attempt to prevent any other child injuries.
