DETROIT (WWJ) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says thousands of baby bath seats are being recalled because they pose a drowning hazard.

The recall includes about 5,600 BeBeLove E-Zee Bath Seats, 34,000 Idea Baby brand infant bath seats, and 1,950 Idea Baby brand infant bath seats made for One Step Ahead.

The CPSC said the bath seats, designed for children between 5-and 10-months old, fail to meet federal safety standards, including the requirements for stability. Specifically, the bath seats can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies.

No injuries or deaths have been reported due to use of any of the products.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bath seats and contact the corresponding company for a refund or replacement.

The recalled products have a white base with suction cups on the bottom, a back/arm support, a detachable back support bar that folds under the seat for storage and a detachable T-bar front stabilizer that folds forward for entry. The back/arm support is gray, blue or pink. “Made in Taiwan” and “BBL” are engraved on the underside of the seat base and “BeBeLove” is printed on a sticker in the center of the back/arm support.

The bath seats were sold at Amazon.com, Diapers.com, Overstock.com and other online retailers from May 2011 through November 2012 for between $19 and $30.

For refund information, consumers can call BeBeLove at 888-464-1218 or visit www.bebeloveusa.com.
