Got this Aqua-Leisure baby float? Get rid of it!

Consumer Reports News: August 30, 2010 03:40 PM

You may be determined to spend as much time as possible in the pool during these last few weeks of summer. If you’re bobbing with your baby, just be sure that it’s not in one of the 4 million baby floats that Aqua-Leisure recalled last year. The leg holes in the seat of the float can tear, causing children to unexpectedly fall into or under the water, posing a risk of drowning. When we wrote about the recall last year, there had been 31 reports of float seats tearing, causing children to fall into or under the water. No injuries had been reported.

If you have one of the dozen-plus recalled models (you can see pictures of all of them on Aqua-Leisure’s website), stop using it and call the company at (866) 807-3998 for a full refund.
