Mother’s Touch Deluxe Baby Bather recall announced for Repair

One of the Baby Bathers involved in the recall - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) along with Health Canada announced the voluntary recall of over 2 million Mother’s Touch Deluxe Baby Bather products because the wire frame could give way when carrying the baby in the seat. If this happens, the baby could fall and hit its head. The manufacturer, Summer Infant, is offering consumers a free repair kit to remedy this problem.

Seven incidents in the US have been reported to the CPSC and Summer Infant. Five infants had sustained head injuries after falling from the bather. Four of these babies had skull fractures from the fall. One child had to be admitted to intensive care to be treated for bleeding on the brain.

The baby bathers were sold at retail stores and online between September 2004 and November 2011 at a price of $15 to $30.

There are many model numbers involved in this recall. The Summer Infant baby bathers came in either blue or pink plastic bases. The bathers vary on the color and pattern of the fabric seat covering. The bases are nearly square, measuring approximately 13 1/2 inches by 12 ½ inches. The model numbers can be found on the side of the baby bather near the warning label or on the front by the washing instructions. Some models could have more than one model number. The model numbers involved in the recall are listed below.
