Evenflo Pillo Portable Napper Recall Lawsuit

The Evenflo Company, Inc., a Piqua, Ohio-based establishment, is recalling about 3,100 Pillo Portable Nappers amid concerns that they can tip-over with babies inside, presenting a life-threatening suffocation risk. In October 2019, the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) warned consumers not to use any inclined sleep products, as the sleepers had been linked to at least 73 infant deaths and more than 1,100 serious injuries.

What’s the Problem?

Jan. 31, 2020 – This recall involves the Evenflo Pillo Portable Napper with model number 12132125, according to the CPSC. The model number can be found on a label on the leg of the product.

The Evenflo Pillo was sold for about $75 online and at mass merchandisers nationwide, including Target, Kohl’s, Buy Buy Baby, JC Penney, and Walmart from May 2017 through January 2020.

If you purchased an inclined sleeper that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Evenflo for a cash refund or voucher.

The Safe Sleep for Babies Act

In May 2022, President Joe Biden signed the The Safe Sleep for Babies Act (H.R. 3182). The bill—which was introduced in May 2021 by Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) — outlaws the sale of inclined sleepers and crib bumpers.

The act defines inclined sleepers as “those designed for an infant up to one year old and have an inclined sleep surface of greater than 10 degrees.” Crib bumpers are classified as “padded materials inserted around the inside of a crib and intended to prevent the crib occupant from becoming trapped in any part of the crib’s openings.” Unpadded, mesh crib liners are not affected by The Safe Sleep for Babies Act.

“The fact that these deadly products can still be found on shelves across the country is extremely confusing to new parents who don’t believe stores would be selling them if they were truly dangerous to babies,” Sen. Duckworth said. “We should be doing everything we can to help new parents and end preventable deaths like these.”
