Aqua-Leisure Industries has voluntarily recalled it baby float products upon immediate recommendation from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Several baby floats have been found to have seats and straps that tear, causing babies and small children to fall into or under the water. There have been 31 incidents to date and fortunately no deaths. Float devices include the names, “Deluxe Baby Boat”, “Baby and Me Combo”, and many animal-shaped flotation devices. For a full list of products and corresponding pictures, please visit www.cpsc.gov.
The flotation products were sold at stores such as Target, Toys “R” Us, Wal-Mart, Dollar, Ace Hardware and Walgreen’s from December 2002 through June 2009. Although the recall does not include all of Aqua-Leisure’s products, it’s a good idea to inspect any flotation device when it comes to the safety of your children in a pool or lake. These straps can break without warning and create a major risk of drowning.
