Strangulation Threat Prompts Recall of 600,000 Angelcare Baby Monitors
Angelcare Movement and Sound Baby Monitors with Sensor Pads are being recalled by the Quebec, Canada-based Angelcare Monitors due to the potential strangulation threat posed to children. A whopping 600,000 products are being recalled from the United States and Canada due to the danger that the monitors’ sensor pad cords could pose if they get pulled into the crib by the child. Sadly, two fatalities have already been reported in association with this safety issue, and two other babies have reportedly become entangled with a cord without being fatally injured. These products have been available from various retailers around the country between 1999 and this past September. Owners can obtain a repair kit from Angelcare that will hopefully eliminate the strangulation threat that would otherwise be posed by these products.
