NANNY RECLINERS The
U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and major retailers are
announcing a voluntary recall to consumers who own Nap Nanny recliners made by
Baby Matters, LLC of Berwyn, Pa. Retailers currently participating include
Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com, and Toys R Us/Babies R Us. At the request
of the CPSC, these retailers have agreed to voluntarily participate because the
manufacturer is unable or unwilling to participate in the recall.
CPSC is warning parents and caregivers that these baby recliners contain defects in the design, warnings and instructions, which pose a substantial risk of injury and death to infants. This recall includes the Nap Nanny Generations One and Two, and the Chill model infant recliners.
In July 2010, CPSC and Baby Matters, LLC issued a joint recall news release that offered a discount coupon to Generation One owners toward the purchase of a newer model Nap Nanny, and improved instructions and warnings to consumers who owned the Generation Two model of Nap Nanny recliners.
At the time of the 2010 recall, CPSC was aware of one death that had occurred in a Nap Nanny recliner and 22 reports of infants hanging or falling out over the side of the Nap Nanny, even though most of the infants had been placed in the harness. Subsequently, despite the improvements to the warnings and instructions, additional deaths using the Nap Nanny recliners were reported, including one in a Chill model. Since the 2010 recall, CPSC has received an additional 70 reports of children nearly falling out of the product.
