- Cosco Inc. and Safety 1st Recall of Bungee Baby Jumpers and Wipe Warmers
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Cosco Inc. (Cosco), of Columbus, Ind., and Safety 1st, of Canton, Mass., are voluntarily recalling about 171,000 bungee baby jumpers and 100,600 baby wipe warmers. The Bungee Baby Jumper allows a baby to bounce while supported in a seat by an elastic "bungee cord," suspended from a doorway. Metal clasps can detach from the bungee cord, causing the unit to fall to the floor. Babies can suffer injuries from the fall. A wipe warmer is an electric appliance that warms baby wipes. Cracks in the interior basin of these wipe warmers can allow moisture to contact the electrical components. Consumers touching the wipes could receive an electrical shock.
