The Squatty Potty is recalling a children’s toilet step stool due to a fall hazard for children. The removable step, which is disguised as a hat, can detach when children are standing on it. There have been two injuries of children falling, one fell and hit her chin on the toilet causing her mouth to bleed and the other fell and hit his head on the wall. These were sold online at Squatty Potty and on Amazon.com for $50 from September 2017 through November 2017. The stool is shaped and looks like a gray hippopotamus with purple or blue eyes. This recall affects around 2,400 step stools.
