Karmas Far Recalls Infant Bath Seats
Ontario, California-based Karmas Far Inc. is recalling about 900 units of infant bath seats due to drowning risk, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
The recall involves Karmas Far’s infant bath seats sold and marketed as a 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 booster seat for eating, bathing, and sitting up. The plastic bath seats with a removable tray were sold in yellow, orange, and white color schemes.
The affected bath seats were manufactured in China and sold online at Walmart, Amazon, Ebay, Wish and Bosonshop from August 2017 through October 2021 for between $35 and $75.
According to the agency, the bath seats fail to meet the federal safety standard for infant bath seats, including requirements for stability and leg openings. They can tip over while in use, posing a drowning hazard to babies.
However, the company has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the recalled products to date.
Consumers are asked to immediately stop using these infant bath seats and contact Karmas Far to receive a full refund for the purchase price.
In similar recalls in August, nearly 120 bath seats for babies that were imported by Frieyss and sold on Amazon.com have been recalled due to a risk of drowning.
Further, citing the drowning risk, Salt Lake City, Utah-based Huish Outdoors in September called back Oceanic Adult Dry Top Snorkels sold exclusively at Costco.

Here comes the Benelli TRK 251
Benelli has launched its quarter-litre adventure tourer, the TRK 251, at ₹ 2.51 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). In the BS4 era, Benelli offered a number of 250cc models, but ever since the BS6 emission norms kicked in, the company’s smallest bike for the Indian market has been the 374cc Imperiale 400. Now, the quarter-litre offerings are making a comeback, beginning with the TRK 251 adventure.
It is powered by a liquid-cooled single-cylinder 249cc engine, the same motor in the Leoncino 250 that was previously offered in India. Output figures stand at 25.8hp and 21.1Nm, which is slightly lower than its direct rival, the KTM 250 Adventure, which offers 29.9hp and 24Nm. The Austrian is also more affordable at ₹ 2.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Holding the little TRK together is a steel trellis frame, suspended on a USD fork and monoshock. While it is marketed as an adventure tourer, its ground clearance stands at only 170mm, which is similar to a Yamaha R15 V4. What will help it tour is its large 18-litre fuel tank, which when combined with the 250cc motor, should offer tremendous range.
With 17-inch alloy wheels at both ends, the TRK’s road-focus is clear and it rolls on very street-oriented Metzeler Sportec tyres. On the features front, it gets an LED headlight, fully digital instrumentation and dual-channel ABS.
