Winnie The Pooh Potty Chair Recalled

WASHINGTON (UPI) -- The US Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the nationwide recall Thursday of approximately 160000 Chinese-made potty training seats.

Here's a link to the official CPSC press release:

It seems like there is a new product recall everyday. I am especially concerned about all the recalls on children's toys and household products. I set up a personal file that alerts me to all product recalls and it sends me a timely notice when one of my products has been recalled.

I am so irritated. We have this potty seat and they are sending what is basically a piece of tape to put over Tigger. Yeah that'll work. What is more fun to a toddler than peeling tape off something. These companies need to fix things right. I don't consider this a good fix. As far as I'm concerned they need to replace the back of the chair. When you buy something like this you expect that it will last through several children. "fixing" it with tape might work for my son now but it's not like it will work for my twins when they're old enough for potty training.

Wow, Cassie...thanks for your comment. I had no idea thier "fix" was so unacceptable! Has anyone else had the same experience? Does anyone know where you can go to complain about the "solution" for the recall??

I just found this site because I was searching for an image of our potty seat for my blog. Quite frankly, I'm not concerned about it. Because the lead must be ingested to harm a child. And my boys have never tried to lick their potty seat, as far as I know.
I agree that tape sounds like a cheesy "fix." The web site says that it's a "clear plastic cover." Has anyone actually seen this cover? Is it really just a piece of packing tape? Because it's so deeply carved, I don't see how that would stick. How about sealing it with clear fingernail polish if you're worried about the paint chipping off? Because it would have to chip off so your child could eat the paint.
