Recalls This Week: Baby Monitors - Angelcare Movement and Sound Baby Monitors

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory/recalls-week-baby-monitors-pajamas-20986194

Quote
About 600,000 baby monitors are being recalled after a cord component was found to be responsible for the strangulation deaths of two infants. Other recalled items include children's pajamas that don't meet flammability standards and food processors with a potentially faulty part.

Here's a more detailed look:

BABY MONITORS

DETAILS: Angelcare Movement and Sound Baby Monitors. The recall involves all versions of Angelcare sensor monitors including model numbers: AC1100, AC201, AC300, AC401 AC601 and 49255 that did not include rigid cord covers, which are offered in the remedy. The model number is located on the back of the nursery monitor unit. The monitors were made between 1999 and 2013. Angelcare is providing consumers with a repair kit that includes rigid protective cord covers, through which the sensor pad cords can be threaded, a new, permanent electric cord warning label about the strangulation risk and revised instructions.

WHY: The cord attached to the baby monitor's sensor pad is placed under the crib mattress, which poses a strangulation risk if the child pulls the cord into the crib and it becomes wrapped around the neck.

Canada's Angelcare recalls 600,000 baby monitors after deaths

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/11/21/usa-recall-monitors-idUSL2N0J61UY20131121

The monitors were sold at a number of retailers from 1999 to September 2013 for about $100 to $300, the CPSC said. The recall is being carried out in cooperation with Health Canada.

One child was reported strangled in 2004 in Salem, Oregon, and a second died in San Diego in 2011, it said. There have been two other reports of infants who became entangled in Angelcare monitor cords.
