Baby Bath Seat Recalls Issued Due to Drowning Hazard

Roughly 41,000 baby bath seats have been recalled due to a failure to meet federal safety standards, posing a risk that the seats may tip over and causing an infant to suffer a head injury or drown while in the bath.  

At least three separate baby bath seat recalls were announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on June 18, after products manufactured by different companies were all found to not meet stability standards.

While no injuries have been reported in connection with the infant bath seats, federal safety regulators indicate that they may easily tip over while the child is sitting in them in a bath tub.
