Sometimes a news report just catches my attention and scares me. At the end of 2012, just before New Year’s Eve four huge retailers, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com, Toy R Us/Babies R Us, and Amazon recalled more than 150,000 of Baby Matter LLC product called the Nap Nanny Baby Recliner. These recliners are blamed for the death of infants who use them. There are dozens of reports of children falling out or almost falling out of the chair and being hurt or killed.
This is exactly the type of case that frightens me. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stated the recall would cover many of the Nap Nanny recliner models sold between 2009 and 2012 and that "the Nap Nanny contains defects in its design, warnings and instructions…[which causes a] "substantial risk of injury and death to infants." The models to beware of are: The “Chill” model, which sold more than 100,000 units; the “Generation One,” which only sold 5,000 units; and the “Generation Two,” which sold more than 50,000 units. We are investigating harm to children who used any of these models.
