Yesterday, the CPSC announced three separate baby bath seat recalls at the following retailers: Buy Buy Baby recalled their Idea Baby Bath Seats, Chelsea & Scott recalled Idea Baby Bath Seats, and BeBeLove recalled their baby bath seats. Here’s what you need to know:

Buy Buy Baby Idea Baby Bath Seat Recall:

The CPSC recalled 34,000 Idea Baby Bath Seats sold at Buy Buy Baby because the bath seats failed to meet federal safety standards, which included the requirements for stability. More specifically, the bath seats can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies. So far, no incidents have been reported. The Idea Baby Bath Seat is designed for children five to ten months old, made of pink or blue plastic and has four suction cups on the bottom. An oval-shaped arm rail runs from the front of the seat to the back and connects two side posts and the seat front. There are two star-shaped spinning toys on the front of the seat rail, above the front post. In between the two spinning toys is a round, inset plastic dis with the words “www.ideababy.com,” “Idea Baby” and “Made in Italy.”

What to do if you own the Idea Bath Seat:

The CPSC advises you stop using the product immediately if you own the recalled seats. If you’ve purchased them at a Buy Buy Baby store (or online), you can return the product to the store and receive store credit. If you’ve purchased the seat through Bed Bath & Beyond, you can return the seat to the store to receive store credit as well. The seats were sold in stores and online at BuyBuyBaby.com and BedBathBeyond.com from September of 2013 through April of 2013 for roughly $40.
