After reports of five infant deaths and legal action by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Baby Matters LLC agreed to recall all models of Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill recliners.
Since 2009, the CPSC has received 92 reports of infants hanging or falling over the side of the portable foam recliners. Babies can get tangled in the harness straps.
CPSC www.cpsc.gov is urging parents to stop using all Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill recliners. Approximately 165,000 Nap Nanny products have been sold.
Baby Matters had previously refused to recall its product, maintaining it as safe when used properly. Last winter, four retailers took the unusual step in recalling the products on their own. Those retailers were Toys R Us/Babies R Us, Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby and Diapers.com.
Parents may be able to obtain a refund from some retailers. However, Baby Matters is out of business and is not issuing refunds. Parents are urged to dispose of the recliners.
Pottery Barn Kids is recalling thousands of Sweet Lambie crib bumpers.
The embroidery threads can loosen and baby can get tangled in them. They were sold between April 2009 and July 2012.
Stride Rite recalled thousands of pairs of children's sandals. The shoe is the Joanna model for little girls. The metal flower can detach and small children can choke on it if they put it in their mouths.
Nearly a quarter million jumbo coffee cups sold at Ikea have been recalled. This involves the Big Lyda cup with a pink rose on it. Several people have been scalded because the cup can break when you pour a hot drink into it. The cup can be returned to Ikea.
Teavana also recalled a half-million of its glass tumblers sold over the past six years. The tumblers can shatter unexpectedly, resulting in cuts and burns.
