CPSC Warns Otteroo Infant Flotation Rings Tragic Led to At Least One Infant

January 24, 2023

The CPSC is aware of nearly 70 other incidents where babies slipped out of the rings.

According to a safety alert report published on, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is warning parents that infant flotation rings retailed by Otteroo Corporation are too dangerous for babies to use.
