Recalled Product Description: Stokke Steps Bouncer
The recall includes 5,400 Stokkes Steps Bouncers that are part of an all-in-one modular system and are used in combination with the Stokke Steps Chair. The products have a plastic arm, fabric seat and the name “Stokke” printed on the care label tag.
Why the Bouncers Were Recalled
It’s possible for the bouncer to detach from the chair. This poses a fall hazard to the child. As of now there is one report of difficulty attaching the bouncer’s straps to the chair. There are currently no reported accidents or injuries. When used without the chair, the bouncer does not currently pose a risk.
How To Tell If Your Baby’s Bouncer Was Recalled
The recalled products were sold in stores across the country, on Amazon and on Stokke’s website from February 2014 through December 2018 for $200. Visit the CPSC’s website here for a full list of recalled item numbers. You can also visit the Stokke website here to check your bouncer’s serial number.
