What’s the Problem?
Jan. 17, 2020 – CPSC said that while the SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper has not been linked to any injuries or deaths, it does present a suffocation risk based on the agency’s evaluation of the product, how it is used, and a third-party’s expert analysis.
SUMR Brands, formerly known as Summer Infant, Inc., discontinued the SwaddleMe Sleeper in 2018, but has not recalled the product, despite the CPSC urging the company to do so. The sleeper is still available for sale, and may still be being used by consumers who purchased them, the agency said.
CPSC does not have the power to force companies to recall their products, and may only issue warnings on potentially defective and/or dangerous products. The agency will continue to press SUMR Brands for a recall on the SwaddleMe Sleeper, according to the press release.
The warning follows a recall of 4.7 million Fisher-Price Rock ’n Play Sleepers and other similar inclined sleepers sold by Kids II and Dorel. Inclined sleepers have been linked to at least 73 deaths and more than 1,000 incidents, including serious injuries, according to the CPSC.
