No incidents or injuries were linked to the recalled products, but other inclined sleepers have caused least 73 infant deaths and over 1,000 incidents or injuries.
Last year, over 5 million inclined sleepers were recalled because babies can roll over and suffocate against the fabric, or suffocate due to airway compression when the baby’s chin touches their chest.
In response, Consumer Product Safety Commission warned consumers not to use any inclined sleep products for babies. The agency also proposed banning all inclined sleepers from the market.
