The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a massive recall of thousands of baby bath seats, because of the possible risk of drowning.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a massive recall of thousands of baby bath seats, because of the possible risk of drowning.

The bath seats were promoted and distributed by Buy Buy Baby.  The company has confirmed that it is recalling 34,000 Idea Baby brand infant bath seats. These bath seats are manufactured for children between the age of five and 10 months. The seats were manufactured in Italy. These seats were imported into the country and sold at Buy Buy Baby as well as Bed Bath and Beyond stores. They were also sold at online retailers between September 2011 and April 2030.

According to the company, there is a possible risk that the baby bath seat could tip over when the baby is on the seat, posing a serious risk of drowning. Fortunately, there have been no reports of any injuries or drowning incidents linked to this product.

The same bath seats are also being recalled by Chelsea and Scott. In this case, the company is recalling approximately 1950 of the same bath seats.  These bath seats were sold at OneStepAhead.com between February 2013 and May 2013.

Parents who own any of these bath seats are requested to immediately stop using the recalled bath seats. Product liability lawyers believe that there is a very real danger of drowning  with this product. In the case of the Buy Buy Baby bath seats, parents have been asked to contact the company for a store credit.  In those cases where the bath seat was purchased at Bed Bath and Beyond, the parents are requested to return the bath seats to the store for a store credit.  In the case of those seats that were purchased at Chelsea and Scott, the company is offering consumers a full refund.
