This morning, the CPSC recalled 5,600 BeBeLove E-Zee™ Bath Seats as they 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. The recalled products are plastic bath seats designed for children between 5 and 10 months old. They 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 seats were sold through Amazon.com, Diapers.com, Overstock.com and other online retailers from May 2011 through November 2012 for between $19 and $30.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bath seats and contact BeBeLove for a full refund. They can do so by calling the company at (888) 464-1218, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or by visiting their website www.bebeloveusa.com and clicking on the Recall Contact tab at the top of the page.
