Baby Float Recalled

As the temperatures rise, San Diego families will likely spend more time at the pool. With that in mind, we want parents to be aware of a serious recall involving thousands of inflatable baby floats.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the seam on Otteroo Inflatable Baby Floats can leak air and deflate, posing a risk of drowning. Otteroo Corporation has received 54 reports of broken seams on the product. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported.

The recall involves approximately 3,000 baby floats. They were sold at Otteroo.com, Amazon.com, and Zulily.com from January 2014 through July 2014 for about $35.

For parents who are concerned that they may own the Otteroo Inflatable Baby Float, it is described as an inflatable round ring made of clear and blue plastic material. It has two air chambers that fasten around a baby’s neck with a white buckle. The floats have a chin rest, two handles and two circular openings on the back of the ring to allow the device to expand as the child grows with age. There are three colorful balls that move freely around inside the ring. The name “Otteroo” is imprinted on the top of the float in large, orange letters with an Otter logo.

Given the serious risk of drowning, parents and caregivers should immediately stop using the recalled inflatable baby floats and contact Otteroo to receive a free replacement.

If your child or someone you love has been seriously injured by a defective product, don’t hesitate to contact a San Diego personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Robert Vaage for a free consultation.
