Over Two Million Baby Bathers Recalled Due to Injury Risk

baby bather recall

Summer Infant has issued a recall for over two million of their Baby Bathers after several reports of infants suffering head injuries after falling out of the devices.

According to the company, the baby bathers have a faulty side hinge that can cause their wire frame to collapse. If a baby is carried in the bather, there is a risk of the baby falling and sustaining serious head injuries. So far there have been seven injuries reported, four of which included skull fractures and one that required intensive care for brain bleeding.

The recalled models were sold at stores nationwide between September 2004 and November 2011. The following model numbers are included in the recall:

  • 08020, 08050, 08054, 08070, 08401, 08409, 08404, 08405, 08650, 08655, 08659, 08754, 08940, 08944
  • 18004, 18040, 18049, 18050, 18120, 18125, 18129, 18254, 18360, 18375, 18379, 18390, 18394, 18440, 18445, 18449, 18470, 18475, 18479
  • 38510, 38515, 38750, 38755

Model numbers with an additional letter at the end are also included in recall. Consumers are urged to stop using the bathers and contact the manufacturer for a free repair kit. Additionally, the baby bathers should never be used to lift or carry an infant.
