Recall of Nap Nanny Infant Recliners

The Nap Nanny infant recliners manufactured by Baby Matters are portable, shaped mattresses designed to be used by infants for resting, sleeping or playing. The recliners feature a foam shaped bucket seat, a fabric cover and a three-point harness. Approximately 165,000 of Baby Matters’ Nap Nanny and Chill infant recliners were sold between 2009 and 2012, at toy stores and children’s retail stores nationwide and online, for about $130. In December 2012, four major retailers – Toys R Us/Babies R Us, Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby and Diapers.com – announced a voluntary recall of Nap Nanny and Chill recliner models sold in their stores. The recent Nap Nanny recall and settlement resolves CPSC claims that the infant recliners pose a substantial hazard to infants, putting them at risk of hanging or falling over the side of the products, or being restrained in the recliner’s harness.

A Product Liability Lawyer Can Help

The administrative complaint, an action rarely taken by government regulators, came after Baby Matters refused to remove the Nap Nanny and Chill infant recliners from the market. Despite the potential risks detailed by federal regulators, Baby Matters LLC has denied all allegations that the products pose a hazard for infants, although the company has agreed to the recall in order to resolve the CPSC lawsuit. Terms of the settlement agreement include Baby Matters recalling roughly 165,000 infant recliners and, although the company is no longer in business, it is required to leave its website available to the public for another five years to warn consumers about the product recall. If you or your child has suffered potential defective product injuries, our consumer advocates at the Consumer Justice Foundation can help put you in touch with a knowledgeable attorney who has experience handling product liability claims in your area.
