Even as four major retailers, including Amazon.com, Toys “R” Us/Babies “R” Us, Bye Bye Baby and Diapers.com, recalled the Nap Nanny infant recliners, the company, Baby Matters, refused to issue a recall. As the company has continued to insist the product is safe, infants have suffered injuries and a few fatalities.
Company sued as it continued to deny safety problem
Even as the Consumer Product Safety Commission sued Baby Matters as a result of the 70 complaints about infant injuries and five infant fatalities, the company still did not issue a recall, insisting the product was perfectly safe. Product liability attorneys serving Tampa and Clearwater know that a company often insists a product is completely safe even as it faces numerous lawsuits. In 2010, similar complaints led to a recall of the Nap Nanny recliners, but the company redesigned the product, increased its size, added warning labels and reintroduced the product to a market. The company also added an instructional video to the product packaging. Complaints of injuries and fatalities have continued despite the redesign, and The Consumer Product Safety Commission believes there is an inherent design flaw in the Napa Nanny recliner.
