Together with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Dream On Me Inc. is recalling two of its products because of child safety concerns. This article includes details about both products and contact information for the company, if you need more information.

First, The company is concerned about the Dream On Me Bath Seats. About 50,000 are being recalled because they do not meet federal safety standards for stability. The seat could tip over, posing a drowning hazard for babies. One 12 month old baby girl nearly drowned, but did not need medical treatment.

The recall includes all Dream On Me bath seats. Some of the seats have a Dream On Me label under or on the rear of the bath seats. They were sold at small retail stores and online retailers including Amazon.com and Wayfair.com from July 2012 through September 2012 for between $25 and $40.

Dream On Me Bed Rails have a white metal frame covered by blue or pink mesh fabric and metal arms that extend about 11/2 feet under the mattress. The bed rails measure 17 inches high x 41 inches long. "Dream on Me" is printed on the top rail.

They were sold at small independent stores and online at Amazon.com and Wayfair.com from September 2011 through May 2012 for between $15 and $30. Parents should also stop using the bed rails immediately and contact Dream On Me for a refund.

The products were made in China. Dream On Me Inc. is based in South Plainfield, New Jersey.
