Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the Otteroo Inflatable Baby Float is an inflatable round ring made of clear and blue plastic material.

The recalled Baby Float has two (2) 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 (3) 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.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. An additional variation of the recalled Baby Float is pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CPSC, the seam on the flotation device can leak air and deflate, posing a risk of drowning. To date, Otteroo has received 54 reports of broken seams on the product. No injuries have been reported.
