Manufacturer Recalls 220,000 Infant Travel Beds Over Fears of Entrapment, Suffocation

The AP reported, “A children’s safety equipment manufacturer has agreed to recall about 220,000 infant travel beds after reports of one infant’s death and nine others entrapped or distressed while inside the portable sleep tents.” According to the AP, the Consumer Product Safety Commission “announced the recall in cooperation with KidCo Inc. of Libertyville, Ill., early Friday after determining that an infant could roll between the bed’s air mattress and the tent’s fabric sides, raising the danger of suffocation.” The story explained that if the travel bed’s air mattress “is placed in the floor of the tent, an infant’s head could lodge between the mattress and the tent’s side, making breathing impossible.”

The Chicago Tribune reported that “the colorful pop-up tents, which are marketed for newborns up through age three, came under fire last December after a 5-month-old New York boy was found dead inside the tent. The boy’s face was pressed up against the side wall of the product, but the cause of his death was not determined, according to the CPSC.”

Reuters also covered this story.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
