Drowning hazard prompts bath seat recall

(WBAL-TV) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Dream On Me Inc., on Friday announced a voluntary recall of Dream On Me Bath Seats.

Officials said the bath seats fail to meet federal safety standards, including the requirements for stability. Specifically, the bath seats can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies.

The CPSC and Dream On Me said they have received five reports involving the bath seats, including a report of a near drowning involving a 12-month-old baby girl. The baby did not require medical treatment.

The recall includes all Dream On Me bath seats. Some of the seats have a Dream On Me label under or on the rear of the bath seats. Model numbers are also printed underneath the bath seats and on the product packaging and include the following product models and colors:

Model Name Model Number Color Baby Bath Seat 251B, 251O, 251P, 251Y Green with orange tray,
orange with beige tray or yellow with green tray Ultra 2 in 1 Infant Bath Tub and Toddler Bath Seat 252B, 252P Solid pink, blue or white body and a blue or pink bottom Niagra Baby Bath Seat 253B, 253G, 253P, 253Y White or blue body with a green, pink or orange insert.

The products were sold for between $25 and $40 at small retail stores and online retailers, including Amazon.com and Wayfair.com from July 2012 through September 2012.
