Nap Nanny Recall 2010: 30,000 Nap Nanny's Recalled After Death
A Voluntary Recall Has Been Issued For 30,000 Nap Nanny Products After One Infant in Michigan Died
The Consumer Product Safety Commission requested that Nap Nanny recall their 30,000 Nap Nanny infant recliners and stress that the product should be used only on the floor.
The infant that died suffocated when she became trapped between the Nap Nanny and her crib bumper.
However, there have also been 22 reports of babies hanging or falling over the side of the Nap Nanny, even with the use of the safety harness.
If you own a Nap Nanny, the company are offering the following refunds and discounts:
- If you own a model purchased before August 15 2009 (it will have no Velcro straps inside the cover securing the cover to the base), then you can apply for an $80 coupon towards the purchase of another Nap Nanny.
- If you own a model from after August 15 2009, then they want you to view their instructional video and read the latest warnings about the product.
For all parents and caregivers: As noted in the warning stickers, tags and online information, 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. The baby can fall or hang over of the side of the Nap Nanny , and become entrapped and suffocate; or if the child falls off the elevated surface, there is a risk of serious head injury. Consumers are strongly advised to follow all instructions, and use the Nap Nanny® ONLY on the floor.
