Lil' Luxuries Infant Bathtubs Recalled

About 86,000 Lil' Luxuries infant bathtubs with fabric swings are being recalled because the swing can detach from the tub and pose an injury and drowning risk, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.

The agency has received 91 reports of the sling detaching, including 11 reports of infants who suffered a bump to the head.

The tubs were distributed by Rhode Island-based Summer Infant, Inc. and sold at stores across the U.S. from October 2012 through October 2013 for about $60. The tubs continue to be available on the secondhand market, the CPSC said.

Consumers should stop using the fabric sling in the tub and contact Summer Infant for a replacement sling with a white plastic attachment clip. Contact the company toll-free at 844-612-4254 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET on Friday, or go to its website.
