Target have issued a recall for a popular baby bath product.

In a statement Target Australia have said the safety of our customers and their families is our highest priority.

“This is why we’ve decided to conduct a voluntary recall of the ‘Ocean’ Bath Mat due to a safety issue.”

The product actually poses a real hazard when wet. (go figure!)

Target have said the material becomes excessively slippery when wet and could result in a nasty fall.

“This item was available for purchase between July 2017 and April 2019 inclusive. We recommend you stop using the item immediately and return it to a Target or Target Country store as soon as possible, with or without a receipt, where our team members will provide you with a full refund.”


  • Glad they have recalled it now so no one (else?) gets hurt.

  • Lucky not in my bath. A bath mat that increases you risk of injury is certainly a fault

  • This was on the shelves for 2 years & they only realised this issue now? What toke so long? Makes me think what have i purchased lately that could possibly be recalled in the future?!


    • Maybe they have only just been made aware of the safety issue with this product.

  • I feel like they could have noticed this issue earlier…

  • That’s certainly a nasty risk, ad one you’d have thought might have shown up with basic testing.
