The following recalls have been announced:

CHILDREN'S BED RAILS

DETAILS: Dream On Me Bed Rails imported by Dream On Me Inc. of South Plainfield, N.J.; sold at small independent stores and online at Amazon.com and Wayfair.com from September 2011 through May 2012. The Dream On Me Bed Rails are used to keep young children from falling out of bed. They have a white metal frame covered by blue or pink mesh fabric and metal arms that extend about 1½ feet under the mattress. The bed rails measure 17 inches high x 41 inches long. "Dream on Me" is printed on the top rail. The bed rails were manufactured in China.

WHY: The bed rail can separate from the mattress, allowing a child's body to become entrapped if he or she slips between the rail and the mattress, posing suffocation and strangulation hazards to children.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 900.

BATH SEATS

DETAILS: Dream On Me Bath Seats imported by Dream On Me Inc. of South Plainfield, N.J.; sold at small retail stores and online retailers including Amazon.com and Wayfair.com from July through September 2012. The Dream On Me bath seats have a Dream On Me label under or on the rear of the bath seats. Model numbers are also printed underneath the bath seats and on the product packaging. The bath seats were manufactured in China.

WHY: 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.

INCIDENTS: CPSC and Dream On Me have received five reports involving these bath seats, including a report of a near drowning involving a 12-month-old baby girl. The baby did not require medical treatment.

HOW MANY: About 50,000.
