Circo Child Booster Seat Recall
On Wednesday, June 15, 2011, Target announced that they would be expanding their recall of Circo child booster seats after numerous reports of injuries continue to plague the device. These particular booster seats contain a defect, in that the restraining belt may unexpectedly release. As a result, children may fall from the seat and suffer a severe injury. However, adverse incidents such as this should come at no surprise to Target. In August of 2009, an additional 43,000 Circo child booster seats were recalled on the account of defective restraints causing children to fall from the seat.
Target has received numerous reports of Circo child booster seat buckles opening unexpectedly. Commonly reported incidents regarding these defective seats include children suffering from injuries such as bumps and bruises after falling out of the seat. Due to the severity and frequency of these injuries, Circo child booster seats have been recalled from Target shelves. Accordingly, the families of children injured by these defective devices may seek compensation by filing a Circo child booster seat recall lawsuit.
Products Affected By The Recall
Every individual Circo booster seat sold at Target, spanning back six years to 2005, has been affected by the current recall. The Circo booster seat boasts a blue body with a light green trim and a white nylon belt buckle. For further identification, the green label placed on the child seat divulges the companies name, Circo, followed by “booster seat”. Each Circo booster seat was deigned to allow children to sit at large tables by utilizing and attaching to adult chairs.
Unfortunately reports of defective belt buckles on every unit adds weight to the suspected link between Circo booster seats and their association with child endangerment. The inability of Circo booster seats to properly restrain children can lead to severe and potentially fatal bodily harm for young children who may fall off the chair. Due to the dangers associated with this defective product, a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) news alert is recommending that consumers immediately stop using the recalled Target Circo booster seats. Adverse events such as these may justify a potential Circo child booster seat recall lawsuit.
