4 companies voluntarily recall infant inclined sleepers to prevent suffocation risk
Summer Infant voluntarily recalls “SwaddleMe By Your Bed” inclined sleepers to prevent risk of suffocation. The company is among others recalling sleepers and loungers as a precaution.
No injuries because of the sleepers have been reported, however, the company is recalling them because infant fatalities have been reported with other manufacturers’ inclined sleep products. That’s according to recall information on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website.
Statement from SUMR Brands:
“Rhode Island-based SUMR Brands is voluntarily recalling the SwaddleMe By Your Bed Inclined Sleeper. No deaths or injuries have ever been reported in the product, and it is not carried by any major retailer. It has significant design differences from other manufacturers’ inclined sleepers and meets all applicable safety standards, but the company has elected to recall the product as a precautionary measure.
The recall affects every SwaddleMe By Your Bed Inclined Sleeper bearing model number 91394. Consumers can check under the seat on the green crossbar for a label showing the model number.
The company is offering a refund or an online store credit to qualified purchasers. Consumers can register for the recall at www.summerinfant.com/alerts/sleeper-recall.
The SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper accounted for less than 1% of the U.S. inclined sleeper market.”
