According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the walkers failed to meet federal safety standards.  Specifically, style number 358 can fit through a standard doorway and is not designed to stop at the edge of a step, as required.

In addition, style number 368 contains leg openings that allow the child to slip down until the child’s head can become entrapped at the neck.  Babies using these walkers can be seriously injured or killed.
