Deaths Lead to Recall of Baby Monitors

WebMD News from HealthDay

Nov 22, 2013 -- About 600,000 baby monitors are being recalled after two babies strangled to death on the device's cord, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.

The recall covers Angelcare Movement and Sound Monitors with Sensor Pads that were made between 1999 and 2013. The cord, which is attached to the monitor's sensor pad is placed under the crib mattress, poses a strangulation risk if the child pulls the cord into the crib and it becomes wrapped around the neck.

Two infant deaths linked to the monitors have been reported to the CPSC: a 13-month-old girl who died in San Diego in 2011 and an 8-month-old boy who died in Salem, Ore. in 2004. In both cases, the infants pulled the sensor pad cord into the crib.

Quebec-based Angelcare Monitors Inc. is providing consumers with a repair kit that includes rigid protective covers through which the sensor pad cords can be threaded, a new electric cord warning label about the strangulation risk, and revised instructions, CPSC said.
