Baby bather recalled due to head injury hazard

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about two million baby bathers.

The Mother's Touch-Deluxe Baby Bathers from Summer Infant, Inc. were sold in various colors and patterns from Sept. 2004 to Nov. 2011 in stores nationwide and online.

According to the CPSC, when the bather is lifted or carried with an infant in it, its folding frame can suddenly disengage from the side hinge. The baby can then fall out of the bather, posing a fall hazard and risk of serious head injury.

CPSC and Summer Infant, Inc. have received seven reports of incidents in the U.S. including five reports of infants suffering head injuries from falls from the bathers.
