Four major retail stores have agreed to stop selling Nap Nanny infant recliners and, at the request of CPSC, are voluntarily recalling the products. Following a 2010 Nap Nanny recall that involved one infant death, CPSC became aware of more infants who died while using these recliners, and another 70 reports of infants falling out of the recliners.
Last month, CPSC sued Nap Nanny manufacturer Baby Matters LLC in an attempt to force a recall of the products, which the agency says pose "substantial risk of injury or death to infants" due to defects in design, warnings and instructions. Now, CPSC says the manufacturer is either unwilling or unable to carry out a recall. That's where the retailers come in.
Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com and Toys R Us/Babies R Us have agreed to handle the recall. If you purchased a Nap Nanny infant recliner from one of these retailers, contact them to learn how to return the product.
