Kidco PeaPod Travel Tents Recall

16 Nov

 

REASON FOR RECALL:

Infants and young children can roll off the edge of the inflatable air mattress, become entrapped between the mattress and the fabric sides of the tent, and suffocate. There have been six reports to the CPSC and three reports to Health Canada of children who became entrapped or experienced physical distress in the product. Two of the six reports included infants who were found crying underneath of the mattress that had not been inserted into the zippered pocket on the bottom of the tent. The CPSC is aware of a death of a 5-month-old boy in December 2011 in New York, who was found with his face pressed against the side wall of the tent. The cause of death was not determined.
