The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in conjunction with Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com, Amazon, and Toys ‘R’ Us/Babies ‘R’ Us, have issued a recall for Nap Nanny recliners by Baby Matters, LLC after five infant deaths have resulted from accidents involving the product. These four major retailers have agreed to take an active part in the recall because Baby Matters, LLC is either unable or unwilling to participate in the recall of these infant products.
This recall targets both the Generation One and Generation Two Nap Nanny recliners, as serious and fatal accidents involving infants have occurred with both models of the product. In 2010, the CPSC issued a recall for the Generation One recliners after receiving reports of 22 infants who fell out of the recliners or were found hanging off them, including one fatal incident. The recliners were subjected to improvements in warnings and instructions regarding the product.
However, in the time since the original recall, the CPSC has received 70 more reports of accidents involving the recliners. These recliners are made from a bucket seat made from foam and a fabric cover that contains a harness. However, due to defects in the design, instructions, and warning, major accidents have continued to occur.
Consumers are warned to immediately stop using these products and can contact the retailers from which they purchased the product in order to learn how they can return the product and receive a refund.
