FDA & CPSC Warn Consumers: Stop Using Infant Sleep Positioners

Photo Courtesy -- CPSC.gov(WASHINGTON) -- Wednesday in a press release, two federal agencies advised consumers "to stop using infant sleep positioners."  The statement on behalf of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said they had received "12 reports of infants between the ages of one month and four months who died when they suffocated in sleep positioners or became trapped and suffocated between a sleep positioner and the side of a crib or bassinet."  “The deaths and dangerous situations resulting from the use of infant sleep positioners are a serious concern to CPSC,” said CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum. “We urge parents and caregivers to take our warning seriously and stop using these sleep positioners, so that children can have a safer sleep.”  CPSC is interested in receiving incident or injury reports related to these products. Visit https://www.cpsc.gov/cgibin/incident.aspx to file a report.
