in Buffalo Wrongful Death Issues

Parents in Buffalo should be aware that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Baby Matters LLC, of Berwyn, Pa., have issued a voluntary recall of an apparently dangerous product.  30,000 Nap Nanny® portable baby recliners sold between January 2009 and July 2010 have been recalled.  These items were sold in retail stores nationwide and online, including at www.napnanny.com. 

This recall follows a report of a four month old girl who died in a Nap Nanny® being used in a crib.  Preliminary reports indicate that she was found in her harness hanging over the side of the product, where she had become caught between the Nap Nanny® and the crib bumper.  Use of the product in a crib is against the product’s instructions.

CPSC and Baby Matters have received 22 reports of infants hanging or falling over the side of the product even though most of the infants were in the harness.  Infants can partially fall out or hang over the side of the Nap Nanny® even while the harness is in use.

More information can be found at www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml10/10309.html.  The company’s recall hotline is (800) 638-2772.

If you have purchased this item, please discontinue using it immediately.  If you have lost a family member as a result of a dangerous product and wish to discuss your legal rights following a wrongful death, please feel free to call my office at 716-542-5444.  We would be happy to help you.
