165,000 Infant Sleepers Recalled Because Of Suffocation Risk
Four manufacturers have recalled about 165,000 inclined infant sleepers because of the risk of suffocation to babies. The recalled sleepers are made by Delta, Evenflo, Graco and Summer Infant.
The voluntary recalls were posted on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's website on Wednesday.
"Infant fatalities have been reported with other manufacturers' inclined sleep products, after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side, or under other circumstances," the four recall notices stated.
While none of the four recalled sleepers have been linked to fatalities, these types of products were a focus of a Consumer Product Safety Commission study last year. It found that 59 babies had died in inclined sleepers since 2005 and that none of the inclined sleep products it had examined were safe for babies to sleep in.
Consumers should contact the manufacturers directly for a cash refund or vouchers. The details on how to reach the companies can be found below in each section about the separate recalls.
