Cosco Bungee Baby Jumpers
Cosco has received 82 reports of the bungee jumper falling to the floor. Fifteen babies suffered bumps, bruises and scratches, the majority of which were to the head.
Only model numbers 04-461 and 04-468 are being recalled. The model number is located on the bottom of the tray. Model number 04-461 is the Bungee Jumper and model 04-468 is the Bungee Combo Pack, which consists of the Bungee Jumper and parts to convert the Bungee Jumper to a stationary exerciser. The stationary exerciser, called the Bungee Bouncer Exerciser, is not part of this recall.
Both bungee baby jumper models have a multi-colored fabric seat with a white plastic frame with a red foam trim. Three yellow cords connect the seat to a blue plastic strap holder, which says "Cosco." Above the blue plastic strap holder is a thick yellow strap, which connects to a green bungee cord. The bungee cord attaches to a blue door hook.
Juvenile product, mass merchandise, discount department and specialty stores nationwide sold the Bungee Baby Jumpers from May 1996 through March 2001 for about $40 to $50.
Consumers should stop using the bungee baby jumpers immediately and contact Cosco at (800) 314-9327 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. The repair kit is no longer available. A new cash incentive is being offered. Do not use these products. Please discard or destroy these products.

Safety 1st has received 17 reports of the interior basin of the wipe warmer cracking. No injuries or shocks have been reported.
Only model number 26133 manufactured from December 1999 through January 2001 is being recalled. The manufacturing date, a six-digit code (year, month, day), is on the bottom of the unit written below the box containing "CAUTION" items and the model number. A yellow duck and the words "especially for baby" are located on the lower left corner of the unit. The wipe warmer was sold with a diaper organizer that attaches to the bottom of the unit.
