Recliner Linked to Infant Deaths Recalled
(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.
