Recalled Frieyss infant bath seat

WASHINGTON — The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall on a bath item that may pose a drowning hazard to infants.

The organization issued a recall on Thursday for the Frieyss brand of infant bath seats which is sold exclusively on Amazon. According to the CPSC, the seats fail to meet federal safety standards for such products including requirements for stability and leg openings. As such the bath seats could tip over while in use posing a drowning hazard to babies.

At this point, no injuries or incidents have been reported.

The seats, which are made by the Qingdao Ruizexin Electronic Technology Co. Ltd., of China, are described as being made of blue plastic with four green suction cups on the bottom. They also feature stickers of clouds, a lion, a sun and a squirrel holding two ballons on the front bar.  The seats are advertised as suitable for babies between six and 12 months and have packaging stickers with "barcode-X002RAO6GV" written on them.

The seats were sold between March 2021 and April 2021 for about $40. Those who have the units are advised to seek a refund from the import company, Frieyss.
