Sixth Baby Dies Due to Use of a Recalled Product
A sixth baby has been reported dead while using a recalled "Nap Nanny" infant recliner pictured above. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the product was recalled in 2012. However, the latest victim of the recalled product was a 8-month-baby who suffocated while secured by a belt which trapped the baby between the recliner and the crib bumper. The baby was found stuck over the side of the Nap Nanny.
The CPSC Communications Director Scot Wolfson has issued a recommendation to avoid recliners at yard sales, online auctions or hand-me-downs. Wolfson said, "Our message to parents is clear: Stop using [the Nanny Nap infant recliner]. It’s dangerous. There’s been six deaths already, and we don’t’ want another child to die unnecessarily." Approximately 165,000 Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill recliners were sold by the company between 2009 and 2012. They are no longer available in stores due to the recall last year but for months the company was reported to have refused to pull the allegedly defective product from the store shelves or offer a refund. The company that manufactured the product is now out of business. It is now illegal to sell the Nap Nanny in the United States.
We at Morton Law Offices, Chartered extend our heartfelt condolences to all of the families who lost loved ones due to the use of this (and all) defective products and ask that you share this information with your friends, family and acquaintances to help save the lives of those who may be exposed to the risk of serious injury or death due to the use of this dangerous product. There are apparently parents, grandparents and caretakers of children out there who may own and still use this product without being aware of the recall.
