Summer Infant is voluntarily recalling nearly two million of its video baby monitors after two strangulation deaths and ruptured batteries.

“Summer Infant of Woonsocket is voluntarily recalling nearly two million of its baby monitors after two infants were strangled to death.” (WPRI)

It’s always sad to report on death--but even more so when it’s an infant. Pennsylvania’s ABC-affiliate WHTM says......the recall is “...linked to the death of a 10-month-old Washington, D.C. girl last March and a six-month-old South Carolina boy in November.
In both cases, the monitors had been placed on or near the cribs.”

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling two different Summer Infant monitor products-- some due to the attached electrical cord and others for the rechargeable batteries.

CPSC reports: “...the cords can present a strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers if placed too close to a crib. Because of this serious strangulation risk, parents and caregivers should never place these and other corded cameras within three feet of a crib.”

...and CNN reports: “...the rechargeable batteries sold with some of these monitors can overheat and burst, thus potentially burning people.”
This “product was sold for about $200 only at Babies ‘R’ Us between September 2009 and May 2010”
