AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you’re putting your baby into a pool this holiday weekend, make sure it’s not an item on the recall list.
On Thursday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall for the Otteroo Inflatable Baby Float because the seam on the flotation device can leak air and deflate, posing a risk of drowning. The firm has received 54 reports of broken seams on the product, thankfully, no children have been injured.
The float is an inflatable round ring made of clear and blue plastic material. The name “Otteroo” is imprinted on the top of the float in large, orange letters with an Otter logo.
The float was available for purchase from several online retailers.
Customers who have the product should contact Otteroo Corp. at (415) 236-5388 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or online www.otteroo.com and click on “Safety” at the bottom of the page for more information.
