June 17, 2013: All Nap Nanny Infant Products Recalled
Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, PA, has recalled Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners and covers
After reports of at least 92 incident reports involving the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill products, including five infant deaths, Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, PA, has recalled Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners and covers.
What’s the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, Pa is announcing the voluntary recall of all models of its Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners and covers. This recall is announced as part of the settlement of an administrative case filed by CPSC in December 2012, which sought a mandatory recall of the Nap Nanny and Chill products. From 2009 to the present, the Commission staff has received at least 92 incident reports involving the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill products, including 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. 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 product’s harness.
The settlement resolves CPSC staff’s allegations that the Nap Nanny and Chill products create a substantial product hazard. CPSC alleged that the products contain a design defect, their use presents a risk of injury to infants, and the instructions and warnings are inadequate. Baby Matters disputed these allegations but has agreed to the recall in consideration for dismissal of the CPSC lawsuit.
Do You Own It?
This recall involves all Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill products.
About 165,000 of the Nap Nanny and Chill products were sold between 2009 and 2012 for about $130. The recalled products were sold at toy and children’s retail stores nationwide and online, including at www.napnanny.com.
What Should You Do?
CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop use of all Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill recliners. Baby Matters LLC is no longer in business and is not accepting returns. Consumers who purchased a Nap Nanny from one of these retailers should contact the retailer for instructions on how to obtain a refund for the product. CPSC urges other consumers to immediately dispose of the products to ensure that they are not used again.
And remember, it is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
