Four retailers agreed to recall more than 150,000 Nap Nanny baby recliners after at least five infant deaths and dozens of reports of children nearly falling out of the recliners, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
The recall covers Nap Nanny Generations One and Two and the Chill model infant recliners. All were sold between 2009 and 2012. The Nap Nanny was designed to mimic the curves of a baby car seat, elevating an infant slightly to help reduce reflux, gas, stuffiness or other problems. The CPSC warned that the Nap Nanny contains defects in its design, warnings and instructions. The agency said the product poses a substantial risk of injury and death to infants.
The four retailers Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com and Toys R Us/Babies R Us agreed to voluntarily participate in the recall because its manufacturer is unable or unwilling to participate, the government agency said. The manufacturer, Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, Pa., told The Associated Press it had gone out of business
