February 6, 2014: BebeLove Announces Recall of BebeLove™ Baby Walker
What’s the Deal?
BebeLove has determined that their BebeLove™ Baby Walkers do not meet federal safety standards. It has been determined that style number 358 can fit through a standard doorway and is not designed to stop at the edge of a step, which is required by the federal safety standard. In addition, style number 368 contains leg openings that allow the child to slip down until the child’s head can become entrapped at the neck, which could lead to serious injury or death. There have been no incidents reported to the company.
Do You Own It?
The recall involves all BebeLove™ Baby Walkers that were sold for babies age 6 months or older. “BEBELOVE” is printed on a label on the seat back and on the base of the walkers. The affected walkers come in a variety of colors: Model 358 walkers have a green, pink or orange musical tray with a white toy bar and solid colored seats; Model 368 walkers have green, pink or white musical tray with a yellow toy bar and printed patterned seats. Both models have white stoppers on the bottom of the base of the walker and model numbers printed on a label on the rear bottom inside of the base.
These strollers were sold in small retail stores in Arizona, California and Utah and online at Amazon.com and Overstock.com from November 2011 through July 2013 for about $25.
