Minneapolis, MN — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Target have voluntarily recalled an additional 375,000 Circo Child Booster Seats for fall hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the product recall on June 15, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the booster seat’s restraint buckle can open unexpectedly, which will allow a child to fall from the chair and result in injuries.

Ten additional reports of injuries have been received by Target, which included three reports of bumps and/or bruises when a child fell forward out of the booster seat and hit something on the floor.

“The expanded recall involves all Circo Booster Seats, including those sold as early as 2005. The plastic booster seats are blue with green trim and a white plastic restraint buckle. They attach to an adult chair to boost a child to a table. ‘Circo’ and ‘Booster Seat’ can be found on a green label located in the front of the booster seat,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to return the recalled booster seats to any Target store to receive a full refund.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Target at (800) 440-0680 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit their website at www.target.com.
