Kids II has voluntarily recalled over 400,000 units of the Baby Einstein "Musical Motion Activity Jumper" in the United States and Canada after receiving nearly 100 complaints about the product, Medical Daily reported.

Of the incidents reported, 61 cases involved injuries ranging from bruises and lacerations to face and skull fractures. The baby jumper has numerous colorful toys attached to its base, and the flawed units appear to have a faulty spring on the yellow sun attachment.

The sun “can rebound with force and injure the infant, posing an impact hazard," according to a report published by the United States Consumer Production Safety Commission (CPSC).

The product was sold at Toys ‘R’ Us, Target, Amazon.com and other stores, and it was retailed for approximately $90, according to Medical Daily.

Kids II is urging anyone who purchased the toy to immediately stop using the product and to contact them for a replacement attachment.

For a complete list of the date codes included in the recall, visit Kids II or CPSC's website.  Consumers can also call toll-free at (877) 325-7056 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday.
