Health Canada has recalled Mother's Touch Baby Bather and small Deluxe Baby Bather imported by Summer Infant Inc. with the following model numbers*:
* Only bathers with a five-metal rivet hinge are affected.
If misused as an infant carrier, the headrest may fold posing a fall hazard for the child.
Although Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents, Summer Infant Inc. and the US CPSC have received seven reports of incidents, five of which involved head injuries from falls.
Customers are advised to NEVER use the bather as a carrier, and to contact Summer Infant Inc. immediately for a free repair kit which includes a locking strap and instructions.
For further information, customers may contact Summer Infant at 1-800-426-4627 between 8 AM and 5 PM ET Monday through Friday or visit the company's website.
From September 2004 to November 2011, approximately 65,000 units of the recalled bathers were sold in Canada.
