Baby Matters Disputes CPSC's Nap Nanny Hazard Assertions
Recently, the Consumer Product Safety Commission sought to halt the sale of Nap Nanny infant recliners by filing an administrative complaint that would make a recall of such items mandatory. Baby Matters, the company behind the product, is going head to head with the agency in a bid to get that complaint rescinded. They argue that the product is safe so long as the user follows the necessary usage procedures. Baby Matters also takes issue with a statement near the end of a CPSC press release saying that the sale of recalled products is illegal, as it implies that a recall had already been issued. The CPSC took their action following five deaths allegedly tied to the product, and a few major retailers have already agreed to stop selling the infant recliners.
