After a long legal battle, Baby Matters LLC, has announced a voluntary recall of all models of the Nap Nanny and the Nap Nanny Chill. This recall is part of a settlement in response to a legal filing by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) which asked for mandatory recall on all of the Nap Nanny products in December 2012. This announcement is the first time that Baby Matters LLC has recalled the product. The recall will end the legal proceedings between the CPSC and Baby Matters LLC.
The Nap Nanny, an infant recliner that was made to increase baby’s comfort while sleeping, was to blame for at least 92 incidents and five deaths since 2009. Last year, many major retailers of the product issued a voluntary recall of any Nap Nannies that were sold in their stores and were giving their customers a full refund for the return of the product.
The CPSC asks for anyone that owns the product to stop using it and get rid of it immediately. Baby Matters LLC is no longer a company, so they are not issuing any refunds. If you purchased and Nap Nanny products from a major retailer, check with them to see if they will issue you a refund for the product.
The company’s founder, Leslie Gudel, said in a statement, ”I am happy to put this issue behind me. It is very disappointing that we had to stop short in our fight. But it was time to move on.”
Please visit the CPSC’s website for more details on the recall.
