WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces the following recall in voluntary cooperation with the firm below. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
Name of Product: Bright Starts Jammin' Jumpers
Distributor: Kids II Inc., of Alpharetta, Ga.
Hazard: The plastic clamp that attaches the jumper seat to a door frame can break, which can cause the unit to fall to the floor. This poses an injury hazard to young children.
Incidents/Injuries: Kids II has received 49 reports of the clamp breaking with 12 reported injuries, including a possible mild concussion, skinned knee, cut lips, and bumps and bruises.
Description: The recalled baby jumpers have a blue canvas seat, yellow straps, and a blue plastic clamp that attaches to an interior door frame. The recalled unit is the Bright Starts Jammin' Jumper with model number 6607, which can be found on a white warning label on the canvas seat. The words "Bright Starts" are printed on the plastic housing that contains the clamp. The jumper was sold with a play mat that makes sounds when the child jumps on it.
Sold at: Mass merchandise and juvenile specialty stores nationwide from December 2003 through May 2005 for about $30.
Manufactured in: China
Remedy: Consumers should stop using the product immediately and disable the jumper by cutting a one-inch portion of the yellow strap just below the clamp. To receive a free replacement product, consumers should cut out the white warning label from the canvas seat and mail the label and the one-inch portion of the yellow strap to Kids II at 555 North Point Center East, Suite 600, Alpharetta, GA 30022.
