2 Million Infant Seats Recalled for Dangers

Infant seats should be safe and reliable, because they carry fragile children on a regular basis. When babies are young, there are still developing, and their bones are not strong. They are also unable to carry their weight and sit up, or sustain a fall. This is why you want to make sure that all seats and products that you use with your infant are free of any dangers. Parents baby-proof their homes, and spend untold amounts of money to save their children from harm.

Recently, Mother’s Touch recalled about 2 million of their infant bathing seats because of dangerous flaws in the manufacturing and engineering of the seat. The baby bathers are constructed so that the small, waterproof lounge chair can dip into the water, suspended on a small plastic platform. In at least five instances, the folding frames on the infant seat unhinged, causing the babies to tumble back and hit their heads. The babies' soft skulls weren’t able to sustain the impact, and four of the babies were taken to the hospital with skull fractures.

Head injuries can also cause brain damage for developing infants, which can drastically change their life and their ability to hold a job or form relationships as they get older. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the manufacturer, Summer Infant Inc. the seats should be returned to the company for a full refund, or people can request a kit which comes with repairs that will make the seat more reliable. The seats were sold at mass merchandise stores all over America as well as online from September 2004 to November 2011. They are between $15 and $30 each. If your baby was injured because of a faulty product, report this to the CPSC and contact a personal injury lawyer to seek damages for the injuries!
