Video Baby Monitors from Summer Infant Subject to Massive Recall

Feb 12, 2011 9:39:33 PM

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced Friday that, in cooperation with Summer Infant Inc., it was implementing a voluntary recall of about 1.7 million video baby monitors with electrical cords to provide new warnings on the product labels.

The CPSC warned that the video monitor cords can present a strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers if placed too close to a crib after the CPSC had received reports of two strangulation deaths of infants with the electrical cords of Summer Infant video baby monitors.

To avoid strangulation risk, the CPSC advised parents and other caregivers to never place these and other corded cameras within three feet of a crib where infants may be able to reach them. Cords should be out of arm's reach of infants and toddlers.
