SunTome Trading Corp. Recalls Infant Walkers

SunTome Trading Corp. Recalls Infant WalkersLos Angeles, CA (SafetyAlerts) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and SunTome Trading Corp. are announcing a voluntarily recall of about 600 baby walkers. The walkers will fit through a standard doorway and are not designed to stop at the edge of a step. Babies using these walkers could be seriously injured or killed if they fall down stairs.

The baby walker is model number ST-108ST, which is written on the box. "Q BABY" is written on a label on the front of the walker and "MADE IN TAIWAN" is written on a tag on the back of the seat.

They are light and dark blue, pink, green, purple and white. They have one of three types of activity trays: "Finger Power Training" features a phone and steering wheel; "Music & Light" features a side-view mirror and plane toy; and "Train Engine" plays four animal sounds and four songs. The walkers are packaged in a box labeled in part, "BABY HAND'S," and "COMFORTABLE PAD MADE OF TC CLOTH, WITH FRONT AND BACK GUARD."

Independent discount stores located in California, Arizona and Texas sold these baby walkers from January 1998 through July 2001 for between $18 and $22.

Consumers should stop using these baby walkers immediately and call the firm for instructions on returning the walkers for a refund and shipping costs. For more information, consumers should call SunTome Trading Corp. at (888) SUNTOME (786-8663) between 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. PT Monday through Friday. This recall came to CPSC's attention as a result of routine import dock surveillance activities in cooperation with the U.S. Customs Service.
