Nap Nanny Recall By Major Retailers

Massive Nap Nanny Recall  via Babble

Several manufacturers are recalling the Nap Nanny, citing five deaths from the product.

One of the most popular pieces of baby gear, the Nap Nanny, has been recalled by major retailers. After a formal plan for recall could not be reached, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has requested that major retailers voluntarily recall the product.

This is a follow-up to the Federal Government’s Consumer Product Safety Commission filing of  an administrative complaint against the Nap Nanny manufacturer earlier this month.

The Nap Nanny officially went out of business two months ago according to owner and founder, Leslie Gudel. Gudel claims that the CPSC’s accusations have been completely false. She believes that the product is entirely safe “when used correctly—on the floor and using a harness.”

The CPSC alleges that “several models of the recliner contain defects in design, warnings and instructions that pose a substantial risk of injury or death to infants.”

So far, 5 deaths have been blamed on the product and several complaints of children falling out have been reported.

Among the manufacturers who agreed to recall the Nap Nanny are: Amazon.com, Bed Bath & Beyond, Buy Buy Baby, Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us.
