Infant Travel Beds Recalled After Death Reported

Posted on November 27th, 2012 No Comments

After an infant’s death was reported from the use of a portable sleep tent, the safety equipment manufacturer announced the recall of nearly 220,000 units.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission along with KidCo. Inc made the announcement after it was determined that a child may become entrapped between the fabric siding of the sleep tent and the air mattress bedding.

When placed upon the floor, the child’s head may become lodged between the bed and fabric and suffocation may result. There have been nine reports of entrapment occurring and recently, one fatal incident.  The recalled childcare product is named the Pea Pod Travel Crib and features an air mattress enclosed by a a domed-shaped tent that can be closed by a zippered pocket.

According to officials, a 5-month-old child from New York City was placed in the tent with his twin sister in order to take a nap in December 2011. KidCo Inc. makes natural feeding products as well as home safety products.

This is the first recalled product from the company and they are offering kits that will correct this danger. The kit includes a thinner mattress and supports that will strengthen the sides of the tent in order to reduce the risk that a child will become trapped.

As consumers, we rely on the notion that products purchased are safe for our family to use. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, if you or a loved one has been injured by a defective childcare product, you need representation that can help you receive the compensation you deserve. While financial compensation cannot erase the incident, it can help ease the burden that comes from expensive medical bills.
