Portable Baby Recliners Recalled


On July 26th the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Baby Matters LLC, is issuing a recall of 30,000 Nap Nanny portable baby recliners. “The product is a portable recliner designed for sleeping, resting and playing. It includes a foam base with an inclined indentation for the infant to sit, along with a fitted fabric cover and a three point harness. The first generation model does not have “D”-rings for the harness.” The CPSC is investigating a report of a 4-month-old girl from Michigan who died in the product as it was being used in the crib. According to preliminary reports, the infant was in the harness, but found hanging over the side of the product. She was caught between the Nap Nanny and the crib bumper.
According to the press release, “Infants can partially fall or hang over the side of the Nap Nanny even when the harness is in use. This situation can be worse if the Velcro strap, located inside the Nap Nanny are not properly attached to the “D”-rings located on the foam, or if consumers are using the first generation model Nap Nanny that was sold without “D”-rings.” The products were sold at toy and children’s retail stores nationwide and on the web, including at the company website, www.napnanny.com, from January 2009 through July 2010. They retailed at approximately $130.
