Summer Infant, Inc—Mother's Touch Deluxe Baby Bather
What are the defects?
When the bather is lifted and/or carried with an infant in it, contrary to product warnings and instructions, its folding wire frame can suddenly disengage from the side hinge, dropping the baby out of the bather.
What are the hazards?
If the frame disengages from the side hinge when the bather is lifted, this may pose a fall hazard and risk of serious injury to infants.
What should consumers do?
Consumers are advised NEVER to use the bather as a carrier, even with the locking strap installed, as warned not to do on a label affixed to the product, on the retail package and in the instruction booklet. Consumers should contact Summer Infant via the website http://www.summerinfant.com/Help-Center/Contact-Us.aspx for a free locking strap and instructions.
