Cpsc Warns New Jersey Of A New Potentially Dangerous Product

Posted on

Complaints about a popular baby recliner have reached the ears of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the results are a lawsuit that New Jersey parents should be aware of for the safety of their young ones. The trendy Nap Nanny Model baby recliners offer a soft foam seat, contoured to promote relaxation and rest. However, now the Feds are claiming that a darker side to this item makes it a dangerous product.

Five documented infant deaths and over 70 complaints of falls have caused the CPSC to file a formal complaint against Baby Matters LLC. Their lawsuit states that the makers of these seats have acted inappropriately by failing to initiate a voluntary recall of the product. This represents part of an ongoing ordeal with the CPSC, as they recalled the Nap Nanny Generation One in mid-2010 following an infant’s death.

In the current complaint, the CPSC has examined the Generation One and Two, as well as the Chill baby seat, and found each to have defective attributes and inadequate warnings. According to reports, Baby Matters LLC has failed to sufficiently warn parents about using their product in cribs and without the safety harness being properly utilized. The company’s founder reportedly still believes in the product and does not recognize a need to stop production.

In an official statement, the founder expressed her regret over a child losing his or her life; however, she also said that she believes the injuries and deaths have been a result of user error. The CPSC, which monitors consumer products in an effort to assure the safety of customers, does not pursue a mandatory recall lightly. It is important for New Jersey parents to stay aware of a potential dangerous product being used in their household, and how to contact the proper representation if an injury does occur.
