Angelcare Monitors, Inc. has recalled approximately 600,000 Angelcare Movement and Sound Baby Monitors with Sensor Pads for strangulation hazards. The cord that attaches to the baby monitor’s sensor pad, which is placed under the crib mattress, poses a strangulation risk if a child pulls the cord into the crib.
Two infant deaths from cord strangulation have been reported, one involving a 13-month-old in 2011 and the other involving an 8-month-old in 2004.
The electrical cord is approximately 11 feet long and is connected from the sensor pad to the monitor unit. The recalled model numbers are AC1100, AC201, AC300, AC401, AC601, and 49255. The recalled baby monitors were manufactured between October 1999 through September 2013 and sold at Babies R Us/Toys R Us, Walmart, Sears, Target, and at almost 70 baby specialty stores.
Consumers should make sure the cords are out of reach from children and should contact Angelcare for a free repair kit which includes a protective cord cover for the sensor pad cords.
