Target Recalls 375,000 Children's Booster Seats

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission(WASHINGTON) -- Target is recalling approximately 375,000 Circo Child Booster Seats after consumers reported problems with the device's restraining belt.

The product's restraint buckle can open unexpectedly, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said Wednesday.

It is not the first time the booster seats were recalled. In August 2009, Target recalled 43,000 of the products for the same problem. Since then, there have been at least 10 reports of booster seat buckles opening unexpectedly, including three reports of bumps and/or bruises when a child fell forward out of the booster seat, hitting an object or the floor, the CPSC said.

The faulty seats were sold at Target stores throughout the U.S. between January 2005 and June 2009. They are blue in color with green trim and a white plastic restraint buckle.

Target is offering a refund to customers who return the item.
