Infant bathtub slings recalled over drowning risk


WASHINGTON (CNN) – Infant bathtub slings made by summer infant are being recalled because they pose a risk of injury and drowning.

The baby product company issued a voluntary recall of 86,000 fabric slings that are attached to Lil’ Luxuries Whirlpool, Bubbling Spa & Shower bathtubs.

The recalled slings are missing a white plastic clip.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there have been 91 reports of the slings detaching and 11 reports of babies bumping their heads.

So far, there are no reports of serious injuries or drowning.

The recalled sling and tub sets were sold between October 2012 and October 2013 at major retailers like Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us and online.

Summer Infant said parents should immediately stop using the fabric sling and contact the company for a replacement.
