600,000 Angelcare Baby Monitors Recalled

baby monitorThis week Angelcare voluntarily recalled over 600,000 baby monitors after the strangulation and death of two infants. Two more infants have reportedly been entangled , but not fatally.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday that a cord attached to the sensor pad placed under the crib mattress poses a strangulation risk if the child pulls the cord into the crib.

The Angelcare Movement and Sound Monitors were sold at a number of popular U.S. retailers between 1999 and 2013.

For years Baby Bodyguards has been telling our clients how important it is to never have cords within the reach of infants/toddlers. Monitors need to be mounted away from the crib and the cords need to be well out of the reach of babies, at least 3 feet.
