The infant walkers fail to meet the federal safety standard. They can fit through a standard doorway and are not designed to stop at the edge of a step as required by the federal safety standard. The walkers also have leg openings that allow the child to slip down until the child's head can become entrapped at the neck. Babies using these walkers can be seriously injured or killed.
This recall involves Zeno collapsible infant walkers with adjustable height settings. The walkers have a black, teal, pink or gray frame; a gray or black seat and a white, teal or pink tray. Some styles have toy attachments and a push handle and “Babywalker” stitched on the seat back.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled infant walkers and contact Zeno via e-mail to receive a shipping label to return the infant walker free of charge. Upon receipt of the infant walker, consumers will be issued a full refund of the purchase price. Zeno is notifying all known purchasers directly.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
