Baby Monitor Recall | Denver Personal Injury Attorney

The Denver Channel (7 News) has posted an Associate Press article about a massive baby monitor recall. According to the article some two million “Summer Infant video baby monitors were recalled” today after “being linked to the strangulation deaths of two infants.” One of the babies was a 10-month-old girl and the other a 6-month-old boy. Both died in 2010. According to a spokesperson for the Consumer Product Safety Commission, any camera or monitor with an electrical cord should be placed more than three feet away from a babies’ crib. In the two cases mentioned above, the cameras were placed within the reach of the babies.

Counting the deaths associated with the Summer Infant monitors, there have been seven reported deaths due to cord strangulation associated with baby monitors since 2004. This may not seem like a significant number, but nobody wants to lose a baby to an accident. The CPSC urges parents and childcare providers to keep cords out of the reach of babies and small children. The agency has also asked that additional reports of such cases to be brought to their attention.
