Infant Travel Tent Recalled Because of Suffocation Risk
About 220,000 infant and toddler PeaPod and PeaPod Plus Travel Beds have been recalled because children can become trapped between the mattress and the side of the tent and suffocate, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced on Friday.
A 5-month-old infant who died last year was found with his face pressed against the side of the tent.
Also, at least nine children in the U.S. and Canada have become entrapped or experienced physical distress while in the tent. Two infants were found crying underneath the inflatable air mattresses after the mattresses had not been properly secured in the zippered pocket in the tent.
