Nap Nanny among dangerous products that have been recalled

Our Texas readers, just like those in other parts of the United States, do their best to only purchase products that are 100 percent safe. This is particularly true when it comes to items for their children.

Recently, a sixth child has died as the result of the Nap Nanny infant recliner. This is one of the most dangerous products in use at the present time, despite the fact that it has been recalled.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the latest death was an eight-month-old child. The baby was secured in the device; however, she suffocated upon becoming stuck between the product and the crib bumper.

In June 2013, the product was recalled by Baby Matters LLC. Although the Consumer Product Safety Commission has urged anybody with access to this product to stop using it, some continue to be purchased secondhand.

The director of the Consumer Product Safety Commission said, "Our message to parents is clear: Stop using it. It's dangerous. There's been six deaths already, and we don't want another child to die unnecessarily."

From 2009 to 2012, roughly 165,000 of these products were sold to consumers. They may no longer be available for sale, but many find them at local thrift stores and garage sales, not knowing how dangerous the product really is.

It is illegal for any Nap Nanny products to be sold in the United States, but there are people out there who continue to use this defective infant recliner. As a result, the chance of additional deaths is very real.
