Chinese Junk Watch: U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Warns about Unsafe Tubeez Baby Bath Support Seats, and Eddie Bauer Infant Carriers

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says Abond Group Recalls Tubeez Baby Bath Support Seats Due to Drowning Hazard.  And Gold Recalls Eddie Bauer Infant Carriers Due to Fall Hazard: Sold Exclusively at Target.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to a product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. Please tell CPSC about your experience with the product on SaferProducts.gov.

Chinese made Tubeez Baby Bath Support Seats fail to meet the federal safety standards including the requirements for stability. The bath seat can tip over or an infant can slip underneath the front support, posing a drowning hazard. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bath support seats and contact Abond Group for a full refund.

The baby bath support is a rigid plastic seat attached to a foam mat for use in the bathtub. The foam mat is either blue, with the model code B9150BL, or gray, with the model code B9150GY, and features multiple suction cups on the underside. The affected seats have the date codes 1251-0916-enj-nacn or 1434-0617-enj-nacn printed on the underside of the mat. Sold at Bealls Outlets nationwide and La Bebe Boutique in Midland, Texas, from October 2017 through March 2018 for about $40.
