Bath Seats Recalled Due to Drowning Hazard

By December 7, 2012

Dream On Me Bath Seat Recall - Photo courtesy of the CPSCThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Dream On Me, Inc. are recalling about 50,000 Dream On Me Bath Seats because they "can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies."

The bath seats, which were made in China, fail to meet federal safety standards and have led to at least five CPSC reports, including a near drowning involving a 12-month-old baby.

The recall includes the Dream On Me:

  • Baby Bath Seat - model numbers 251B, 251O, 251P, 251Y
  • Ultra 2 in 1 Infant Bath Tub and Toddler Bath Seat - model numbers 252B, 252P
  • Niagra Baby Bath Seat - model numbers 253B, 253G, 253P, 253Y

If you have one of the recalled bath seats, which were sold from July 2012 through September 2012 for between $25 to $40, you should stop using it and get a free replacement bath seat from Dream On Me.

Dream On Me is also recalling about 900 Dream On Me Bed Rails because "the bed rail can separate from the mattress allowing a child's body to become entrapped if it slips between the rail and the mattress. This poses suffocation and strangulation hazards to children."
