At the request of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, four retailers are voluntarily recalling Nap Nanny baby recliners after several deaths and more than 100 cases of a child falling, or nearly falling out.
The companies participating in the recall are Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby (with a Crystal Lake store), Diapers.com and Toys R Us/Babies R Us (also in Crystal Lake). The models include Nap Nanny Generations One and Two, and the Chill™ model infant recliners.
"CPSC is warning parents and caregivers that these baby recliners contain defects in the design, warnings and instructions, which pose a substantial risk of injury and death to infants," the agency said in its announcement.
The recliners are made by Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, Pa.
The first recall was made at the request of the CPSC in July 2010 when one child died and several fell or nearly fell out of the Generation One model. Despite improvements to two subsequent models, the dangers continued, the agency said.
