    Baby Monitor recall

    Advertisements
    600K baby monitors recalled after 2 deaths - NBC News.com

    WASHINGTON —Angelcare Monitors Inc. is voluntarily recalling 600,000 baby monitors following the death of two infants due to strangulation.

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

    Two infants have died from cord strangulation deaths with this product and two more have reportedly been entangled, but not fatally.

    The Angelcare Movement and Sound Monitors with Sensor Pads were sold between 1999 and 2013 for between $100 and $300 at a number of U.S. retailers, including Babies R Us, Toys R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Meijer, Sears, Walmart, Amazon.com, Target.com, Overstock.com and nearly 70 small baby specialty stores

    Oh wow! I know a lot of people who have those. I think Miriah does here? Could totally be wrong, though.

    This recall is ridiculous, IMO. When it's used properly, the cord is supposed to run down under their crib and not in reach in any way.

    I feel so sad for those babies and families though.

    Stupid enough to kill two kids the same way, I guess.

    I edited my response because I realize how it sounded, which was not my intent. I have the sensor pad.

    2 out of 600,000 does not show that these are automatically dangerous, though, yes, the death of even one child is always too many when it may have been prevented.

    yeah i have one. we stopped using a monitor all together when Addi turned one cause now she just goes "MAAAAAAAA" and it wakes me up

    but yeah we used it for a year and i loved it. it was impossible for addi to grab the cord unless she grew extra long arms in the middle of the night and can reach under her crib through the rails.

    thats sad it caused two deaths though
