The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced earlier this week Baby Matters, LLC, is launching a voluntary recall of the Nap Nanny® and Nap Nanny Chill® baby loungers due to safety hazards. The loungers are being recalled as part of a settlement of a Defective Product case that was brought against the company in December of last year.
According to a CPSC Press Release, 165,000 units of the product were sold at retailers across the nation from 2009 to 2012 at a price of roughly $130 each. It was discovered that sleeping infants could roll out of the device, even when secured by a safety harness. In total, the company received 92 reports of children falling, which resulted in the deaths of five infants and dozens of others being injured.
The CPSC recommends anyone in possession of the affected product halt its use and dispose of it immediately. If the product was bought on Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com, or Toys-R-Us/Babies-R-Us, consumers should contact the retailer where the product was purchased to receive instructions on how to receive a full refund.
The Tulsa Personal Injury Attorneys with J. Colbert Injury Lawyers are aware of the risks posed by using a product that is faulty or has been recalled. The firm urges anyone who has been injured by such a product to discuss their legal rights with an attorney immediately.
