About 7,500 Thermobaby Aquababy Bath Ring Seats have been recalled by SCS Direct Inc., of Milford, Conn. 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 5 months to 10 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.
The seats were sold exclusively at Amazon.com from June 2012 through January 2013 for about $35. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bath seats and contact the company for instruction on returning the bath seat and receiving a $35 refund.
