600k Baby Monitors Recalled After Two Infant Deaths

After two infant deaths, Angelcare Movement and Sound Monitors with Sensor Pads are being recalled. There are also eight reports of strangulation in the baby monitor cords since 2002. The cord attached to the sensor pad, which is placed under the crib mattress to monitor movement has potential to strangle the infant if the child pulls the cord into the crib. The monitors were sold between 1999 and 2013 for $100 to $300. A number of retailers in the United States carried the monitors including Babies R Us, Toys R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Meijer, Sears, Walmart, Amazon.com, Target.com, Overstock.com, and around 70 small specialty stores.

Consumers should stop using the product immediately and contact the company for more information. The recall involves Angelcare model numbers: AC1100, AC201, AC300, AC401, AC601, 49255.

Angelcare will be providing consumers with a repair kit that includes rigid protective cord covers, so that the sensor pad cords can be threaded. There will also be a new electric cord warning label and revised instructions.
