Swim seat for infants recalled

8:50 pm on 3 December 2008

An Australian toy company is recalling an inflatable swim seat for infants which it has sold in New Zealand over the past six years.

Playcorp issued the recall amid concerns over air escaping from a stopper plug.

The company says there is a risk the product designed for children up to 18 months may deflate during use at a rapid rate.

The product has been sold since 2002 under the brand names Aqua Spirit and Deep Blue.

Playcorp is advising customers to return the Swim Seat toy to where it was bought for a full refund.
