Jumping-Jacks Shoes "Baby Jacks" Bean Bag Cushions Recalled

Monett, MO (SafetyAlerts) - Jumping-Jacks Shoes, Inc. is voluntarily recalling approximately 45,000 of its "Baby Jacks" Bean Bag cushions because of a suffocation risk. The Commission has received 19 reports that an infant was found dead lying face-down on an infant bean bag cushion, of which one (1) death allegedly involves a Jumping-Jacks product.

The Baby Jacks cushion is a fabric covered, polystyrene pellet-filled cushion intended for use with infants. The manufacturer's name is attached to the product along with information concerning fiber content.

Approximately 45,000 Baby Jacks cushions were sold nationwide from 1985 through February, 1990 in Jumping-Jacks Shoes and other small retail stores for about $15.00.

Jumping-Jacks and the Commission staff urge consumers to stop using these cushions immediately.

Consumers who have a Baby Jacks Bean Bag cushion may return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
