Dream On Me Bath Seats, Bed Rails Recall: Unsafe for Infants
A recall has been issued for infant bed rails and bath seats made by Dream On Me, Inc., after government officials deemed them unsafe due to a risk drowning and strangulation.
The Dream On Me Bath Seat recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on December 6, after at least five incident reports were received, including one near drowning of a 12 month-old baby girl.
The bath seats are being recalled because they do not meet federal safety standards including the requirement for stability, which allows them to tip over easily, posing a drowning hazard to infants.
