Important voluntary recall alert just in from Angelcare® Monitors Inc., in cooperation with the CPSC.
I considered this baby monitor for Em, but the wire definitely worried me. Luckily they have created a remedy for the exposed wire. Make sure to order yours below free of charge to remedy the issue.
If you or someone you know owns an Angelcare Movement and Sound baby monitor with sensor pads needs to stop using it immediately. The following model numbers are affected by this recall:
- AC1100 series
- AC201 series
- AC300 series
- AC301 series
- AC401 series
- AC601 series
There have been two reported deaths of babies due to strangulation when the cord that is attached to the baby monitor’s sensor pad was pulled into the crib and became wrapped around the baby’s neck. Normally the sensor pad is placed under the mattress; however, the cord remains exposed on the side of the crib.
Please discontinue use and remove the entire unit until you receive your cord cover kit. You can contact Angelcare by phone, email or simply place an order for the kit online.
