Nap Nanny Recliners Recall: Napper Linked To Five Infant Deaths

Nap Nanny recliners are being recalled after dozens of reports of children falling out of the Nap Nanny recliner.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Nap Nanny recliners recall started in 2012.

At the time, some of the nation’s largest stores, including ed Bath & Beyond, Amazon, Toys R Us, Babies R Us, and Diapers.com, agreed to recall 150,000 Nap Nanny infant recliners. The recall was a voluntary move by retailers following the reported deaths of several infants, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission actually sued the company would not agree to the Nap Nanny recliners recall. The company shut down in November of 2012, although its website remains open with product information.

Just yesterday, Baby Matters LLC announced the recall of its Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners as part of a settlement with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which claims there were at least 92 incidents involving the Nap Nanny recliners. Nap Nanny Generation Two recliners are reported to have caused the deaths of four infants and a fifth died using the Chill model.

Baby Matters disputes the idea that their Nap Nanny recliners contain any defects, but they have agree to the Nap Nanny recall in order to have the CPSC lawsuit dismissed. It is estimated that the Nap Nanny recliners recall will affect about 165,000 units sold between 2009 and 2012.
