The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a news release on December 5, 2012 indicating that it will be suing Baby Matter, LLC, the manufacturer of Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners.  The product is a portable recliner designed for sleeping, resting and playing and is made out of a foam base, fabric cover, and harness.  After reports of five infant deaths associated with these products, the CPSC decided to file a formal complaint seeking an order that would require the manufacturer to notify the public of the defects and offer consumers a refund.  In addition to the five deaths, there are 70 reports of babies almost falling out of the chair.  The CPSC met with Baby Matter to discuss the potential hazard and encourage a voluntary recall, but the company did not do so. The CPSC was thus prompted to file the formal complaint and warn the public of the potential danger.
