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 Amazon.com and Wayfair.com 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.
