One Million Bumbo Seats Recalled

On September 25th, BBA announced that the Bumbo Baby Seat was under government investigation.

Today, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Bumbo, announced a voluntary recall of 1 million Bumbo “Baby Sitter” Seats.

The CPSC and Bumbo are voluntarily making available free downloads of updated instructional leaflets and safety warning labels. In the meantime, Bumbo has temporarily stopped selling the Bumbo Baby Seat until the packaging can be updated to ensure there is no confusion about the safe, proper use of the Bumbo Baby Seat. They expect to resume sales of the Bumbo Baby Seat in the next several days.

From the comments I read, it sounds like a similar warning is already included with the Bumbo seat. This "recall" is more of an addition of information/warnings rather than a true recall. So as long as you do not put the seat on a high surface and do not leave your child unattended, you are ok!
