Baby monitors recalled after 2 baby deaths
(WTVR) – A voluntary recall has been issued for a certain baby monitor after the death of two children. The “Angelcare Movement and Sound Monitor with Sensor Pads” poses a strangulation risk, according to the U.S. Consumer Safety Commission.
Parents are instructed to place the baby monitor’s sensor pad underneath the crib mattress. That same wire could strangle a newborn if the child pulls the cord into crib and it becomes wrapped around the baby’s neck.
The recalled monitors were sold at several stores between October 1999 and September 2013. The monitors cost between $100 and $300.
