  • The recalled Tubs have model numbers LP2848, LP2851, LP2853, LP3153 or LP3255 and serial numbers 124423 through 131569 containing the prefix HS, HSHY, HSHS, HSMB or MBHS. The model and serial numbers are located on the back of the small access panel on the faucet end of the tub.

According to the CPSC, the Tub’s heated seat can get stuck in the “on” position. If a towel or other item is covering the seat of an empty Tub, the seat can overheat, posing a burn hazard to consumers. There have been 11 reports of the empty Tub’s heated seat getting stuck in the “on” position, including one report of the seat overheating and becoming hot to the touch. No injuries have been reported.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession a recalled Tub, please do not use it. Instead, kindly contact Oliver Fiberglass for new instructions and warning stickers to place on the tubs. In addition, consumers should not put a towel or other item on the seat.
