It’s time to check your baby’s bath seat. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced three separate recalls of baby bath seats all due to a drowning hazard. If you own a bath seat for your little one to sit up in during bath time, you need to take a look and see if your seat is one of the seats being recalled.
The three recalls include about 34,000 Idea Baby Bath Seats, 5,600 BeBeLove Bath seats, and about 1,950 Idea Baby bath seats made for One Step Ahead. The CPSC is asking that anyone who owns any of these seats should stop using this product unless otherwise instructed and contact the companies for a refund.
All three bath seats are specifically being recalled for failure to meet federal safety standards, including the requirements for stability. The bath seats can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies. No injuries have been reported for any of the bath seats.
Here is more information on each individual recall:
