August 6, 2009. Today Target Stores issued a recall of 43,000 Circo Booster Seats that they sold between December 2008 and June 2009. The booster seats have defective seat belts that can unexpectedly release, allowing the child or infant to fall from the chair and be injured. Eight injury events have been reported.

The plastic seat is blue with a green trim. The defective seat belt and buckle are white. Model numbers are available at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety website.

If you or family members have such a booster seat, please stop using it immediately. Target will accept the return of the item for a full refund.

The attorneys at Reiner, Slaughter & Frankel, LLP keep a watchful eye on recall notices issued by manufacturers and the government, particularly with respect to child safety, and post these notices from time to time on our website, to keep consumers in Northern California informed.
