Mayborn USA has recalled baby monitors in the U.S. and Canada due to a strangulation hazard.
The recalled Tommee Tippee® Movement and Sound Baby Monitors with Sensor Pads products include models 1082S and 1094S. According to the consumer product safety commission, nearly 25,000 have been recalled in the U.S and 3,500 in Canada.
Both models come with a sensor pad that fits under the baby’s crib mattress and sounds an alarm if no movement is detected for 20 seconds. No injuries have been reported, but officials said the products come with a 10-foot cord that runs from the pad to the baby monitor. It is said that a baby can pull the sensor pad cord around his/her neck, deeming it hazardous.
Consumers are advised to immediately make sure all monitor cords are out of reach of children and to contact Mayborn USA for a free cord kit. The kit will include a new permanent electric cord warning label about the strangulation risk, and revised instructions.
