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.

2 Crib Recalls Already This Year!

On January 13, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the recall of over 500,000 Stork Craft Baby Cribs. The cribs were sold at major retailers, including J.C. Penney, Kmart, and Walmart stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Babiesrus.com, Costco.com, and Walmart.com from May 2000 through January 2009 for between $100 and $400.

 

The metal brackets used to support the crib mattress and mattress board can crack and break creating a dangerous gap between the mattress and crib rails. A child could become entrapped in the gap and suffocate.

 

Consumers should stop using the recalled cribs immediately and find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby. Consumers should contact Stork Craft for a free replacement kit. For more information, read the CPSC recall notice.

 

The recall is in addition to a Jan. 6 recall of over 56,000 Jardine brand cribs. The Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled approximately 320,000 Jardine cribs last year and just last week announced the recall of an additional 56,000 Jardine brand cribs.

 

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission the wooden slats on the cribs can break, creating a gap that poses entrapment and strangulation hazards. The recall includes Dark Pine Olympia Lifetime Cribs, Antique Walnut Capri Single Cribs and White Capri Lifetime Cribs sold at KidsWorld, Geoffrey Stores, Toys “R” Us, and Babies “R” Us stores nationwide and at babiesrus.com from March 2004 through January 2009 for between $220 and $330.
