Nap Nanny Deaths Spark Voluntary Recall by Four Retailers
This morning, four retailers voluntarily recalled the Nap Nanny at the request of the CPSC: Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com and Toys R Us/Babies R Us. The voluntary recall comes because the manufacturer is unable or unwilling to participate in the recall of the Nap Nanny product.
CPSC warns parents and caregivers to discontinue use of the Nap Nanny recliner as it contains defects in design, warning and instructions, posing a substation risk of injury and death to infants. The voluntary recall includes the following models: Nap Nanny Generation One, Nap Nanny Generation Two and Nap Nanny Chill ™.
There have been over 70 reports to the CPSC of children nearly falling out of the product and four infants have died in Nap Nanny Generation Two recliners. A fifth death involved the Chill model. The maker of the Nap Nanny, however, maintains that its products are safe, and that the incidents resulted because of misuse.
For more details, consumers are asked to review the return policy of each individual retailer from where they purchased the Nap Nanny product:
