The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with SCS Direct Inc, have announced a voluntary recall of about 7,500 Thermobaby Aquababy Bath Ring Seats because the bath seats fail to meet federal safety standards, including the requirement for stability. Specifically, the bath seats can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies.
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 side posts and the seat front post. There are three spinning toys on the front of the seat rail above the front post. “Thermobaby Z.I. De Kerbois,” “Aquababy” and “Ref. 1953 Made in France” is engraved underneath the bath seat.
Parents are asked to stop using the recalled bath seats and contact the firm for instruction on returning the bath seat and receiving a $35 refund. SCS Direct Inc. toll-free at (888) 749-1387 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or online at www.SCSdirectinc.com and click “Recall Notices” for more information.
