Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumpers are being recalled after reports of injuries affecting toddlers and at least one adult.

The voluntary recall from Atlanta-based Kids II includes 400,000 product units sold in the U.S. and 8,500 sold in Canada.

There have been reports of injuries associated with the yellow sun toy on the stationary activity center which is connected to a flexible stalk surrounded by colored rings. The sun toy can rebound with force, potentially causing an injury.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has received 100 reports of incidents involving the baby jumpers, including 61 injuries. A 7-month-old baby sustained a skull fracture, and adult chipped a tooth, and bruises and cuts to the face have been reported.

The recall was announced by the CPSC in conjunction with the agency Healthy Canadians.

Included in the recall are products with the model number "90564," which can be found on a tag attached to the seat's underside. The affected products were manufactured prior to November, 2011 and contain the following date codes: OD0, OE0, OF0, OG0, OH0, OI0, OJ0, OK0, OL0, OA1, OB1, OC1, OD1, OE1, OF1, OG1, OH1, OI1, OJ1 and OK1.

The $90 products were sold by Target, Toys R Us, Amazon.com and other retailers from May 2010 through May 2013. People with the product should stop using it immediately, according to CPSC, and contact KIDS II for a replacement sun toy attachment. They can also call 877-325-7056 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

"Every day, Kids II strives to create the best, most reliable products for you and your child," the company said in a statement.
