/ Blog/ Sixth Baby Dies While Using Nap Nanny Recliner
Baby Matters LLC or Berwyn, Pa. announced a voluntary recall of all models of Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners and covers in June 2013. From 2009 to 2014, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) received at least 92 incident reports, including six infants who died while using the infant recliners. According to the incident reports, infants hung or fell over the sides of the products.
The CPSC urges consumers to immediately dispose and discontinue use of the products. It’s estimated that about 165,000 of the products were sold between 2009 and 2012.
Federal law bans any person from selling the Nap Nanny, or any other products subjected to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
