Nap Nanny Product Recall

Yesterday, the Consumer Products Safety Commission announced that Baby Matters, LLC is voluntarily recalling approximately 30,000 baby recliners following the death of a 4-month-old girl from Michigan. Baby Matters, LLC is aware of 22 total incidents involving this product. The Michigan girl died when she fell over the edge of her recliner and was pinned between the recliner and her crib bumper causing her to suffocate.

The product already has warning labels, stickers and other types of warnings indicating that the Nap Nanny should never be placed inside a crib, play yard or other confined area, or on a table, countertop or other elevated surface.

Proper Use: Always use the Nap Nanny on the floor away from any other products

INCORRECT USE: Photo of re-enactment of doll falling over side of Nap Nanny® placed in crib.

Baby Matters is offering an $80 discount coupon towards the purchase of a new Nap Nanny, with free shipping for owners of a first generation Nap Nanny (purchased before August 15, 2009 and identified by the absence of Velcro straps inside the cover).

Consumers with a second generation Nap Nanny model are being encouraged to stop using the product until they are able to visit the firm's website to obtain new product instructions and warnings as well as view an instructional video to help consumers ensure the harness is properly fastened.
