CPSC and Nap Nanny and Chill Infant Recliners

Date of Settlement: June 14, 2013

Name of Product:
Nap Nanny and Chill Infant Recliners

The Hazard:
 The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) states that from 2009 to the present, the Commission staff has received at least 92 incident reports involving the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill products, including five infant deaths. CPSC is aware of four infants who died in Nap Nanny Generation Two recliners and a fifth death involved in the Chill model. In the incident reports received by CPSC, there were 92 reports of infants hanging or falling over the side of the products, including some infants who were restrained in the product’s harness.

Description: 
The settlement resolves CPSC staff’s allegations that the Nap Nanny and Chill products create a substantial product hazard. CPSC alleged that the products contain a design defect, their use presents a risk of injury to infants, and the instructions and warnings are inadequate. Baby Matters disputed these allegations but has agreed to the recall in consideration for dismissal of the CPSC lawsuit. It is illegal under federal law for any person to sell, offer for sale, manufacture, distribute in commerce, or import into the United States any model of the Nap Nanny or Chill recliner or the covers.

What to do: CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop use of all Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill recliners. Baby Matters LLC is no longer in business and is not accepting returns. In December 2012, four major retailers -- Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com, and Toys R Us/Babies R Us -- announced a voluntary recall of Nap Nanny and Chill models sold in their stores. Consumers who purchased a Nap Nanny from one of these retailers should contact the retailer for instructions on how to obtain a refund for the product. CPSC urges other consumers to immediately dispose of the products to ensure that they are not used again.
