      Four manufacturers are recalling 165,000 inclined sleepers over suffocation risks

      Regulators say infants should sleep on a flat surface

      The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that four companies have recalled 165,000 inclined sleeper devices because of the growing concern about potential suffocation.

      Late last year, the agency proposed a rule that would virtually eliminate the sale of inclined sleepers, an infant bed that allows babies to sleep at a 30-degree angle. The American Academy of Pediatrics has long argued that babies should sleep on flat surfaces and has warned that the inverted sleepers can be deadly.

      Summer Infant

      According to the CPSC, Summer Infant is recalling 43,000 SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper inclined sleepers. The company says the recall is due to concerns that babies could die if they roll from their back to their stomach or side.

      Evenflo

      Evenflo is recalling about 3,100 units of its inclined sleeper, the Pillo Portable Napper. The company says it is taking this action because infant fatalities have been reported with other manufacturers’ inclined sleep products.

      Delta Enterprise

      Delta Enterprise is recalling its incline sleeper with an adjustable feeding position for newborns and is also citing the risk of suffocation. Other products included in the recall include Disney Baby Minnie Mouse Incline Sleeper with Adjustable Feeding Position for Newborns; Delta Children Deluxe 3-in-1 Activity Rocker, Feeder and Sleeper; Simmons Kids Beautyrest Deluxe 3-in-1 Activity Rocker, Feeder, and Sleeper; 3-in-1 Activity Rocker, Feeder and Incline Sleeper.

      A total of about 5,900 units are included in the recall.

      Graco

      Graco has issued a recall for about 112,000 units of its Little Lounger Rocking Seat. Again, the concern that the product may increase the risk of infant suffocation is cited as the reason for the recall.

      Preventing infant mortality

      All four companies are offering refunds to consumers who purchased the sleepers.

      Safety concerns about inclined sleepers increased in the wake of a study by Erin Mannen, assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, who led a research team that concluded that the design of the inclined sleeper is not safe.

      The researchers found that the inclined sleeper makes it easier for an infant to roll into a facedown position. If they lack the strength to roll over again they can suffocate.

      In July, Fisher-Price recalled 71,000 inclined sleeper accessories included with all models of Fisher-Price Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards. At the time, the company said infant fatalities had been reported while using other inclined sleep products after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained or under other circumstances.

      The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that four companies have recalled 165,000 inclined sleeper devices because of the growing concern abo...

      Ferrari recalls California and 458 Italia vehicles

      The passenger front airbag inflators may explode

      Ferrari North America is recalling 982 model year 2009-2011 California and model year 2010-2011 458 Italia vehicles with non-desiccated, passenger front airbag inflators containing phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant that were used as interim remedy parts for previous Takata recalls.

      An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

      What to do

      Ferrari will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger airbag assembly with an alternate one, including a new non-ammonium nitrate inflator free of charge.

      The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
