More than 600,000 Angelcare Movement and Sound Baby Monitors are being recalled. The cord attached to the baby monitor’s sensor pad is placed under the crib mattress, which poses a strangulation risk if the child pulls the cord into the crib and it becomes wrapped around the neck.
Angelcare and the CPSC have received reports of two infant cord strangulation deaths – in 2004 and 2011.
The company is offering a repair kit that includes rigid protective cord covers through which the sensor pad cords can be threaded, a new, permanent electric cord warning label about the strangulation risk, and revised instructions.
