Children in baby walkers are exposed to hazards that would not normally be accessible if the child were not supported by the walker, posing a variety of risks of injury to the child. Children in baby walkers can also fall down the stairs, which could result in injury or death.
What you should do
Consumers who have these baby walkers should immediately stop using them and safely dispose of the baby walkers in such a way that they cannot be used again. Removing wheels from a baby walker does not make it a stationary activity center. Baby walkers should be destroyed and thrown away.
Health Canada has prohibited baby walkers in Canada under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA).
The products have been removed from sale online from the website Amazon.ca. Health Canada has contacted the foreign selling company and is advising consumers to immediately stop using the affected baby walkers.
To date, no incidents or injuries related to this product have been reported to Health Canada.
Amazon reported that 147 units of the affected product were sold in Canada.
