WASHINGTON -- Federal safety officials are recalling about 50,000 baby bath seats over drowning concerns.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall on Thursday.
CPSC said the Dream On Me bath seats do not meet federal safety standards, including the requirements for safety. The seats can tip over, increasing a baby’s risk of drowning.
CPSC and Dream On Me have received five reports involving these bath seats, including a report of a near drowning of a 12-month-old girl. Officials said the baby did not require medical treatment.
The recall involves several models of Dream On Me baby and toddler seats. Click here for more information on the model numbers involved.
The recalled seats were sold at small retail stores and online from July 2012 through September 2012 for about $37.
If you own one of the recalled seats, stop using it immediately and contact Dream On Me for a free replacement seat.
