In December 2012, the CPSC filed a complaint with Baby Matters, LLC and sought a mandatory recall of the products. The recall, announced June 14, 2013, ends CPSC's legal proceedings against the company that is no longer in business.
Since 2009, there have been 92 reported incidents involving infants hanging or falling over the side of the products, some who were restrained in the Nap Nanny's harness. Additionally, 4 infants died while using the Nap Nanny Generation Two Recliner and a fifth infant death occurred in the Nap Nanny Chill model.
According to CPSC, approximately 165, 000 Nap Nanny and Chill products were sold at major retailers nationwide and online. With no possible fix for the products' problem, consumers owning any Nap Nanny are urged to immediately throw it away to ensure it is not used by anyone again.
Furthermore, since the product has been recalled, it is illegal for anyone to sell, manufacture, distribute, or import into the U.S.any Nap Nanny models or Nap Nanny covers.
