What is the problem?
The bath seats fail to meet federal safety standards, including the requirements for stability. Specifically, the bath seats can tip over, posing a risk of drowning to babies.

This recall includes Idea Baby brand infant bath seats made for One Step Ahead. The recalled bath seat is designed for children five months to ten months old.

Two star-shaped spinning toys are on the front of the seat rail above the front post. Between the two spinning toys is a round, inset plastic disc with the words "www.onestepahead.com," "One Step Ahead," "Idea Baby" and "Made in Italy."
