Mansfield Plumbing Products Recalls Bathtubs Due to Fall Hazard
Mansfield Plumbing Products is recalling a number of acrylic bathtubs, whirlpools and air bathtubs. The grab bars used on the recalled tubs can loosen and break, posing a fall hazard to consumers.

The acrylic grab bars are affixed to the interior of the tubs about shoulder height from a seated position. The grab bars were sold in various styles and colors including white, brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze, a polished brass finish and chrome.
The recalled bathtubs were sold exclusively by Mansfield Plumbing Products nationwide from May 2011 through July 2011.
