WASHINGTON, DC (FOX19) -

Several companies are recalling baby bath seats due to safety reasons.

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. 

Buy Buy Baby is recalling 34,000 bath seats. This recall includes Idea Baby brand infant bath seats. The recalled product is a bath seat designed for children five months to ten months old. The seat is made of pink or blue plastic and has four suction cups on the bottom. An oval-shaped arm rail runs from the seat back and connects two side posts and the seat front post. 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.ideababy.com," "Idea Baby" and "Made in Italy."

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bath seats. If purchased at a Buy Buy Baby store or online, consumers should return the bath seats to any Buy Buy Baby store to receive a store credit. If purchased at a Bed Bath & Beyond store, consumers should return the bath seats to the store where purchased to receive a store credit.

Chelsea & Scott is recalling about 1,950 bath seats sold on onestepahead.com. This recall includes Idea Baby brand infant bath seats made for One Step Ahead. The seat is made of white plastic with blue trim and has four suction cups on the bottom. An oval-shaped arm rail runs from the seat back and connects two side posts and the seat front post. 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."

BeBeLove is recalling about 5,600 bath seats. This recall includes all BeBeLove E-Zee™ Bath Seats. The recalled products have a white base with suction cups on the bottom, a back/arm support, a detachable back support bar that folds under the seat for storage and a detachable T-bar front stabilizer that folds forward for entry. The back/arm support is gray, blue or pink. "Made in Taiwan" and "BBL" are engraved on the underside of the seat base and "BeBeLove" is printed on a sticker in the center of the back/arm support.

The seats were sold at Amazon.com, Diapers.com, Overstock.com and other online retailers from May 2011 through November 2012 for between $19 and $30. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bath seats and contact BeBeLove for a full refund.

No injuries have been reported with any of these recalls.
