After the death of five infants, four major baby gear retailers have agreed to stop selling the Nap Nanny infant recliners, which were previously recalled in July 2010.
What's the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has found that the manufacturer of the Nap Nanny—Baby Matters, LLC, of of Berwyn, Pennsylvania—has been unwilling or unable to participate in the voluntary recall announced in 2010, so four of the largest baby gear retailers, namely, Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com and Toys R Us/Babies R Us, have agreed to stop selling and recall the infant recliners, which have been involved in five infant deaths and nearly 100 reported incidents of falls, entrapment, or other injuries.
Do You Own It?
The Nap Nanny is a portable infant recliner designed for sleeping, resting and playing. The recliner includes a bucket seat shaped foam base and a fitted fabric cover with a three point harness. Five thousand Nap Nanny Generation One and 50,000 Generation Two models were sold between 2009 and early 2012 and have been discontinued. One hundred thousand Chill Models have been sold since January 2011. The recalled Nap Nanny recliners were sold at toy and children's retail stores nationwide and online, including at www.napnanny.com. All models were priced around $130.
