WASHINGTON, DC (KAIT) – Target has expanded their recall of Circo Child Booster Seats following additional reports of falls.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the booster seat's restraint buckle can unexpectedly open allowing a child to fall from the chair and be injured.

Target has received 10 additional reports of seat buckles opening and three reports of bumps and/or bruises when a child fell.

About 43,000 booster seats were recalled in August 2009, and now that number has increased to about 375,000.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled booster seats and return them to Target for a full refund.
