Although no injuries have been reported, about 3,000 Otteroo Inflatable Baby Floats are being recalled because the seam can leak air and deflate, which poses a risk of drowning.

The company has had 54 reports of broken seams.

The float is a ring of clear and blue plastic that has a chin rest and two air chambers that fasten around the baby's neck. The name Otteroo is printed on the top.

The items were sold on Otteroo.com, Amazon.com and Zulily.com from January 2014 to July of 2014. Consumers should stop using the float and call the company at 415-236-5388 to receive a replacement.
