Baby Matters, LLC of Pennsylvania is being sued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to protect children after the company’s infant recliners had been linked to the deaths of five children. The Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners are tied to the deaths of four and one infants, respectively. Another seventy children have reportedly fallen out of the product.
The complaint filed by the CPSC alleges the Nap Nanny Generation One, Nap Nanny Generation Two, and the Nap Nanny Chill have substantial defects in the instructions, warnings, and design present a substantial risk of death and injury to infants. The suit was filed after negotiations between Baby Matters and the CPSC did not result in an acceptable voluntary recall plan for the recliners.
Over two years ago the company, in partnership with the CPSC, issued an $80 coupon to owners of the Nap Nanny Generation One to be put toward the purchase of a newer model, along with better instructions and warnings to owners of the Generation Two model.
