CPSC Recalls Thermobaby Bath Seats by SCS Direct Due to Drowning Hazard
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled Thermo Aquababy Bath Ring Seats due to drowning hazard. The bath seats fail to meet the federal safety standards, including the requirement for stability. Specifically, the bath seats can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies. Consumers should stop using this product unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
The recall includes Aquababy Bath Ring seats in pink or blue designed for children five months to ten months old. The seat is made of white plastic with blue, pink or green trimming and has four suction cups on the bottom. An oval-shaped arm rail runs from the seat back and connects two sides posts and the seat front post. There are three spinning toys on the front of the seat rail above the front post. "Thermo Z.I. De Kerbois," "Aquababy" and "Ref. 1953 Made in France" is engraved underneath the bath seat.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bath seats and contact the firm for instruction on returning the bath seat and receiving a $35 refund.
