CPSC Investigation Leads to Recall of Nap Nanny | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

Posted by Catherine Bertram

Baby Matters LLC, which produces and markets the Nap Nanny, has issued a voluntary recall of Nap Nannies sold between January 2009 and July 2010.  The Consumer Product Safety Commission investigated the product after a Michigan infant died when her head became wedged between the Nap Nanny and her crib bumper.

Officials emphasized that users should never place the Nap Nanny in a crib or near any other objects on the floor.  The danger is higher on earlier Nap Nanny models, which do not have D-rings.  Consumers with earlier models can obtain an $80 coupon toward a newer, safer model by calling Baby Matters LLC at (888) 240-4282 or by visiting the company’s recall page.
