Squatty Potty is recalling approximately 2,400 SquattyPottymus children's toilet step stools.

The top removable step (hat) on the recalled toilet step stools can detach while a child is standing on it, posing injury and fall hazards.

Recalled Product Details

This recall involves SquattyPottymus children's toilet step stools used to assist a child in reaching a toilet seat. The plastic step stools measure about 15.8 by 16.8 by 10 inches and were sold individually or as a part of a set, which included a toilet seat and decorative stickers.

The step stool is designed to look like a gray hippopotamus with blue or purple eyes. It has a height-adjusting aqua blue hat top step and cut-outs that function as handles on each side.

Where were they sold?

The recalled SquattyPottymus children's toilet step stools were sold online at squattypotty.com and Amazon.com from September 2017 through November 2017 for about $50 each.

To date, Squatty Potty says that it has received two reports of children falling from the toilet step stool, resulting in one child hitting her chin on the toilet and biting the inside of her mouth, causing her to bleed. Another child fell and hit his head on a wall.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled SquattyPottymus step stools until they remove the hat. Contact Squatty Potty for instructions on returning the hat portion of the stool, free of cost, for a $10 refund.
