Baby Floats Recalled, Could Cause Babies To Drown

Seriously. WTF?

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is asking parents to immediately stop using a series of inflatable floats for babies in swimming pools, announcing a voluntary recall of about four million floats on Thursday.

The items — which inflate to seat babies and toddlers as they float on water — are manufactured by Massachussetts-based Aqua Leisure Industries. The company has voluntarily recalled 14 models because the legs straps in the seat of the float can tear, causing children to slip into the water and pose a drowning risk, the commission said in a statement.
