BAD CRIBS: A children’s safety equipment manufacturer is recalling about 220,000 Pea Pod Travel cribs after reports of one infant’s death and nine others entrapped or distressed while inside the portable sleep tents.
SUFFOCATION RISK: An infant could roll between crib’s air mattress and the tent’s fabric sides, raising the danger of suffocation.
CALL NOW: KidCo Inc. has sold 220,000 of the travel beds since 2005 online and in various retailers. Consumers should stop use of the crib and get a kit to address the danger. Contact the company at 855-847-8600 or visit its website at http://www.kidco.com.
