The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced a recall of all Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners. The recliners are manufactured by Pennsylvania-based Baby Matters LLC. The company was sued by the CPSC last December to recall these defective products.
So far the agency has received at least 92 incident reports involving Baby Matters Nap Nanny products. The reports include five infant deaths.
CPSC is aware of four infants who died in Nap Nanny Generation Two recliners and a fifth death involved in the Chill model, the agency said in a press release. In the incident reports received by CPSC, there were 92 reports of infants hanging or falling over the side of the products, including some infants who were restrained in the products harness.
There were about 165,000 recliners sold in the U.S. Between 2009 and 2012. The recliners retailed for around $130 and were available in a wide array of stores.
The agency is advising consumers to throw out their Nap Nanny recliners to ensure that no more infants are exposed to the products.
