Recliner Linked to Infant Deaths Recalled

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission(NEW YORK) -- Baby Matters, the former maker of the Nap Nanny is recalling all of the company's baby recliners after the products were linked to at least five infant deaths and dozens of babies hanging or falling out of the chairs.

Due to the fact that Baby Matters is out of business, there is no plan to repair the product or refund customers' money, reports USA Today. The recall is part of a settlement after the Consumer Product Safety Commission filed a case against Baby Matters last year.

Approximately 165,000 of the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill products were sold between 2009 and 2011, says USA Today. The products costs about $130.

Some retailers, including Amazon, Buy Buy Baby and Toys R Us/Babies R Us have agreed to refund the purchase price of recalled Nap Nannies purchased in their stores.

Amazon, Toys 'R Us and More Recall Nap Nanny Infant Recliners

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission(WASHINGTON) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and four major baby-product retailers announced a voluntary recall Thursday of all versions and styles of Nap Nanny infant recliners in the wake of multiple reported infant deaths.

The commission says five infants have died in the recliners and owners should immediately stop using the product.

The recliner was first recalled in 2010 by the manufacturer, Baby Matters, LLC of Berwyn, Pa., after one infant died and the CPSC received 22 reports of other infants falling or hanging out over the side of the product.  Despite new instructions and warnings, the government agency says more deaths and additional reports of children falling out were recorded.

Earlier this month, the commission officially declared that the recliners “create a substantial risk of injury to the public.”

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says four major retailers -- Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com, Amazon.com and Babies 'R Us/Toys 'R Us -- agreed to participate in the voluntary recall because the manufacturer was “unable or unwilling to participate in the recall.”

Customers can contact the retailers for a refund.
