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 Baby Matters, the company behind the product, is going head to head with the agency in a bid to get that complaint rescinded.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.
