Baby walkers recalled due to fall, entrapment hazards

Posted: Updated:

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling more than 3,500 baby walkers due to fall and entrapment hazards.

The walkers are made by BebeLove and were sold at some retail stores and online at Amazon.com and Overstock.com from November 2011 through July 2013 for about $25.

Product information

The CPSC said the walkers failed to meet federal safety standards. Specifically, style number 358 can fit through a standard doorway and is not designed to stop at the edge of a step as required by the federal safety standard.

Style number 368 contains 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.

Consumers should stop using the recalled baby walkers immediately and contact BebeLove toll-free at (888) 464-1218 or online for a free repair kit.
