Child Drowning Risk Prompts Recall of Baby Bath Seats
Dream On Me is recalling approximately 50,000 baby bath seats. The bath seats fail to meet federal safety standards, including the requirements for stability. Specifically, the bath seats can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Dream On Me have received five reports involving these bath seats, including a report of a near drowning involving a 12-month-old baby girl.
The recall affects all Dream On Me bath seats, including Ultra 2 in 1 Infant Bath Tub and Toddler Bath Seat and Niagra Baby Bath Seat models.
Some of the seats have a Dream On Me label under or on the rear of the bath seats. Model numbers are also printed underneath the bath seats and on the product packaging. Model numbers of the recalled bath seats are 251B, 251O, 251P, 251Y, 252B, 252P, 253B, 253G, 253P, 253Y.
The bath seats were sold at Small retail stores and online retailers including Amazon.com and Wayfair.com from July 2012 through September 2012.
