The wall mounting bracket and seat rods supporting the seat can corrode and break

Steamist of East Rutherford, N.J., is recalling about 4,700 tilt-up bath & shower seats sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The wall mounting bracket and seat rods supporting the seat can corrode and break, posing fall and laceration hazards.

The firm has received 62 reports of the shower seats breaking, including four reports of injuries.

This recall involves wall-mounted, folding shower seats made of teak wood slats joined together by support rods that extend from two wall-mounting brackets.

The recalled products have model numbers SBS-101BN, SBS-101PN, SBS-101PC or SBS-101ORB and have brushed nickel, polished nickel, polished chrome or oil-rubbed bronze finishes on the support rods and bracket covers.

The seats measure 20 inches wide by 13 inches deep.

The shower seats, manufactured in China, were sold at specialty plumbing supply outlets in the U.S., Canada and Mexico from June 2009, through February 2015, for between $490 and $660.
