Thousands of Infant Sleepers Recalled Over Suffocation Risks
UNITED STATES – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall involving thousands of inclined infant sleepers because of the risk of suffocation. Millions of other brands of similar sleepers were recalled last year after reports of tragic infant fatalities were tied to the sleepers.*
CPSC Announces Recall of Thousands More Infant Sleepers Over Suffocation Risks
The latest recall involves inclined sleepers manufactured by Evenflo, Delta Enterprise Corp., Graco, and Summer Infant. No injuries associated with these companies’ sleepers have been reported to date, but several infant fatalities have been linked to other brands of recalled inclined sleepers. Infants using inclined sleepers can potentially roll onto their sides or onto their stomachs and then suffocate against the surfaces of the sleepers. The American Academy of Pediatrics says that infants need to sleep on their backs, using a flat, firm surface.
Graco recalled the largest number of sleepers in this batch, with 111,000 of its Little Lounger Rocking Seats included in the recall. These include units sold between 2013 and 2018 at stores across the country, like Target and Babies R Us. The Graco sleepers retailed for approximately $80.
Summer Infant recalled its SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper, which retailed close to $100 and sold nationwide. This sleeper was also sold on Amazon and would have been available from March 2017 to December 2019.
Delta Enterprise Corps., recalled several types of inclined sleepers, including the Beautyrest Beginnings Incline Sleeper, the Disney Baby Minnie Mouse Incline Sleeper, the Delta Children Deluxe 3-in-1 Sleeper, and the Simmons Kids Beautyrest Deluxe 3-in-1 Sleeper. These sleepers all retailed between about $40 and $50 and were sold between January 2017 and December 2018.
Evenflo recalled its Pillo Portable Napper, which was sold between May 2017 and January 2020. It sold nationwide at stores including Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, and JCPenney and was priced around $75.
