Lexibook has issued a recall of about 5,900 baby bath seats due to a drowning hazard.

The affected seats do not meet the federal safety standard, including the stability requirements. The seats might tip over while the baby is in it, posing a drowning hazard.

The plastic seats and chairs are meant to be used by children six months old and older. They include a plastic base with suction cups located on the bottom, a back/arm support, and a toy tray. The brand name Lexibook is stamped on the back/arm support, while Made in China and 2014 Lexibook Limited IT028/IT029 SN: 1407/VA09 are stamped on the base's bottom. The seats and chars were sold in numerous colors.

The affected products were sold online from January 2013 until August 2016 for between $30 and $60.

No incidents or injuries have been reported in relation to this recall.

Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the recalled products and to contact the online retailer from which it was purchased to receive return instructions and either a full refund or a refund in the form of a store credit or gift card, depending on the retailer. All consumers known to have purchased one of the affected products will be contacted directly regarding the recall.
