WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, also known as the CPSC, announced a second recall of children’s sleeper beds. The second urgent recall pertains to the Kids II sleeper and bed combination. The CPSC reported that five children died while in a Kids II sleeper since 2012. According to a report appearing in the USA Today, Kids II announced the recall on Friday, April 26, 2019. Approximately 700,000 sleeper units manufactured by Kids II sold under various names and brands are subject to this recall campaign. Kids II manufacturers and assembles its sleeper for companies like Walmart, Target, Toys R’ Us online, among other retail outlets.
Kids II recalled all of its sleeper and bed combination units because of the potential for a child to suffocate. Five children have died since 2012 after being placed in the sleeper. The five children who died rolled over or stood up while unrestrained or died under other circumstances. The children fell over consequently suffocated because they were not strong enough to roll to their backs from their stomachs. The CPSC did not specify the other circumstances in which the other children died.
Kids II sold its sleeper units to popular retail outlets under names like Disney Baby, Bright Starts, Ingenuity, and Dream Comfort. In total, the recall impacts nearly forty sleeper brands and models. Anyone concerned about the recall should contact Kids II on their website or call their toll-free number.
The Kids II recall comes merely two weeks after Mattel announced that its Fisher-Price Rock N’ Play sleeper bed accounted for thirty child deaths over the last decade. The CEO from Consumer Products told USA Today that she is tired of governmental agencies and manufacturers of consumer products refusal to act more quickly after learning about their products which are tied to injuries and fatalities.
