Recall of the Week: Otteroo inflatable baby floats due to drowning risk from deflations
July 13, 2015
The Otteroo Corp. is recalling about 3,000 inflatable baby floats.
The seam on the flotation device can leak air and deflate, posing a risk of drowning, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
The firm has received 54 reports of broken seams on the product. No injuries have been reported.
Three colorful balls move around inside the ring. The name “Otteroo” is imprinted on the top of the float in large, orange letters with an Otter logo.
The baby floats were sold at Otteroo.com, Amazon.com, and Zulily.com from January 2014 through July 2014 for about $35.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled inflatable baby floats and contact the firm to receive a free replacement, the company and commission advise.
