Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, Pa., has recalled all models of its Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners and covers. This recall was announced as part of the settlement of an administrative case filed by the CPSC. From 2009 to the present, the Commission staff has received at least 92 incident reports involving the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill products, including five infant deaths. The CPSC says it is aware of four infants who died in Nap Nanny Generation Two recliners and a fifth death involved in the Chill model. In the incident reports received by the CPSC, there were 92 reports of infants hanging or falling over the side of the products, including some infants who were restrained in the product’s harness.
The CPSC has urged consumers to immediately stop use of all Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill recliners. Baby Matters LLC is no longer in business and is not accepting returns. In December 2012, four major retailers – Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com, and Toys R Us/Babies R Us – announced a voluntary recall of Nap Nanny and Chill models sold in their stores. Consumers who purchased a Nap Nanny from one of these retailers should contact the retailer for instructions on how to obtain a refund for the product. CPSC urges other consumers to immediately dispose of the products to ensure that they are not used again.
About 165,000 of the Nap Nanny and Chill products were sold between 2009 and 2012 for about $130. The recalled products were sold at toy and children’s retail stores nationwide and online, including at www.napnanny.com. In December 2012, CPSC staff filed an administrative complaint against Baby Matters LLC seeking a recall of the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners. CPSC staff and Baby Matters LLC reached a settlement agreement that includes the recall and ends the legal proceeding against the firm.
The settlement resolves CPSC staff’s allegations that the Nap Nanny and Chill products create a substantial product hazard. CPSC alleged that the products contain a design defect, their use presents a risk of injury to infants, and the instructions and warnings are inadequate. It is illegal under federal law for any person to sell, offer for sale, manufacture, distribute in commerce, or import into the United States any model of the Nap Nanny or Chill recliner or the covers.
