Recall of the Week: Dream On Me bath seats due to drowning hazard

Dream On Me Inc. is recalling about 50,000 bath seats

Baby Bath SeatThe bath seats fail to meet federal safety standards, including the requirements for stability, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement. The bath seats can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies.

The commission and Dream On Me have received five reports involving these bath seats, including a report of a near drowning involving a 12-month-old baby girl. The baby didn’t 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. Click here for a list of product models and colors.

Manufactured in China, the bath seats were sold at small retail stores and online retailers including and from July 2012 through September 2012. The cost was $25 to $40.

Consumers should stop using the recalled bath seats immediately and contact Dream On Me to receive a free replacement bathtub, the company and commission advise.
