Summer Infant Baby Bathers Recalled

Summer Infant Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) are recalling two million Mother’s Touch/Deluxe Baby Bathers due to possible fall and head injury hazards.

The bathers are used to keep infants safe and comfortable during bath time. When the bather is lifted with an infant in it, its folding wire frame can suddenly disengage from the side hinge, dropping the baby out of the bather, and posing a fall hazard and serious risk of head injuries.

Summer Infant has received seven reports of the bathers detaching and five reports of infants suffering head injuries. Four out of the five infants received skull fractures, while the fifth child received a bump to the head requiring emergency room attention.

The bathers were sold at retailers nationwide and online between September 2004 through November 2011 for between $15 and $30. Consumers should immediately stop using the bathers and contact Summer Infant for a free repair kit that includes a locking strap and instructions.

If you have purchased a product and suspect that the product poses health or safety hazards, contact Khorrami, LLP for a confidential consultation.
