What is the problem?
These baby recliners contain defects in the design, warnings and instructions, which pose a substantial risk of injury and death to infants.
How can I tell if I own this product?
Previously, certain retailers participated in a voluntary recall on Nap Nanny products sold in their stores. This announcement expands previous recalls to include ALL Nap Nanny products, regardless of purchase location.
The Nap Nanny is a portable recliner designed for sleeping, resting and playing. The recliner includes a foam base with an inclined indentation for the infant to sit in and a fitted fabric cover and a three point harness. The first generation model of the Nap Nanny can be identified by the absence of "D"-rings in the foam base. In second generation models, the harness system has "D"-rings in the foam base and Velcro straps inside the fitted fabric cover.
It is illegal under federal law for any person to sell, offer for sale, manufacture, distribute in commerce, or import into the United States any model of the Nap Nanny or Chill recliner or the covers.
