Infant Bathing Seats Recalled

The AP reported that "More than 2 million infant bathing seats are being recalled after reports of four infants sustaining skull fractures in falls when the frame came unhinged." The AP notes that in the recall notice, "the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the manufacturer Summer Infant Inc. of Woonsocket, R.I., said four children between 2 weeks and 2 months old received skull fractures, including one that required intensive care for bleeding on the brain." The notice adds that "falls can occur when the bather is lifted and/or carried with an infant in it." The company will provide a free repair kit that includes a locking strap and instructions.
