The Consumer Product Safety Commission has delivered its first mandatory standard for baby bath seats used for assisting the infants in bathing wherein the baby is held in an upright seated position.
The regulation is stringent, even though it has been covered by a voluntary standard written by ASTM-International.
According to the consumer reports, bath seats give caregivers a false sense of safety. Parents sometimes fill up more than required water or leave the baby alone in the bathroom.
When they return, they may find the seat leaned and the baby drowned. Thus, parents are being advised to go through the safety blog post.
In a recent incident, an 18-month-old baby girl suffered brain damage as the lid of a trunk fell down on her neck and dropped her throat against the rim. Following the mishap, Target ordered the recall of 350,000 woven storage trunks
In addition, the Consumer Product Safety Commission also reported two similar cases of mishap. The trunks were sold in 14 styles in numerous sizes.
The Commission said that it is very important to keep people updated with the safety measures time to time.
