Nap Nanny Baby Recliners Recalled After Infant Deaths

WASHINGTON (KTLA) — The former maker of the Nap Nanny issued a voluntary recall of its infant recliners after five babies died and dozens of others were injured.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission made the announcement on its website Friday, since Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, Pa., the company that made the products, has gone out of business.

“CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop use of all Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill recliners,” a statement from the agency said.

The recall of the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill recliners and covers, was part of a settlement reached last year with Baby Matters.

Sold across the US, the products injured at least 92 babies, as a result of them hanging and or falling out of them, according to the CPSC.

Unlike most recalls, there was no manufacturer refund available as the parent company, Baby Matters, was no longer in operation.

About 165,000 of the Nap Nanny and Chill products were sold between 2009 and 2012, the CPSC said.

The products were carried by four major retailers including Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com, and Toys R Us/Babies R Us.
