ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission issued a recall for a foldable infant bath seat sold on Amazon due to potential drowning hazards.

The recall on BATTOP foldable infant bath seats, which was announced on April 1, said the bath seats failed to meet federal safety standards for infants, including requirements for stability. The seats can tip over while it's in use, which poses a safety risk to babies.

The 5,000 recalled items were exclusively sold on Amazon.com from July 2020 through October 2020 for about $40.

The BATTOP seats are plastic with white seats and blue, green, or gray restraint bars. It also has four white suction cups on the bottom. The model number for the recalled items, BB2206, can be found on a sticker on the back of the seats.

Customers should immediately stop using the recalled seats and contact the company for instructions on how to return the item with free shipping. For more information, customers can email BATTOP at service@battop.net.

No injuries have been reported.
