Baby bather recall
We have a consumer alert for parents. About 2 million Mother's Touch Deluxe Baby Bathers are being recalled.
The problem is the side hinge. If you pick up the bather with the child inside, the bather frame can slip out of the hinge, and the baby could fall.
The bathers have adjustable side hinges with five rivets each and a white wire frame with a mesh fabric sling seat and two or three positions for the seats. Some also have a head support cushion.
The fabric seat comes in various colors including white, blue, green, yellow and orange with fish, turtles, butterflies, frogs, flowers and duck patterns. Bathers manufactured since July 2007 include the warning “Never lift or carry the bather with infant in it.”
The bather was sold at stores nationwide. The manufacturer Summer Infant is providing free repair kits. For more information call (800) 426-8627.
