It’s designed for floor-level use only. But in 28 cases, parents placed their babies atop a table, the seat toppled and the head injuries include three skull fractures. Parents may contact the company for new, more blatant warning stickers – or better yet, don’t put your babies on top of tables and walk away. Jeez.

In other recall news, hundreds of thousands of kiddie bracelets, Go Diego toy boats, and bobble-head football cake decorations have been recalled due to lead paint. Of course.
