I always thought Angelcare Baby Monitors were the best when I had my girls, although we never owned one, I always wanted to get one.
Angelcare Baby Monitors are the ones that provide a sensor mat that goes underneath the crib mattress, but it has a cord attached, that is a strangulation hazard! There has been 2 deaths in the US because of this!
The recall covers all versions of Angelcare sensor monitors that did not come with the rigid cord covers, including numbers: AC1100, AC201, AC300, AC401 and 49255. The model numbers are located on the back of the nursery monitor unit. They were made between 1999 and 2013.
The company is offering a repair kit that includes rigid protective cord covers, a new, permanent warning label and revised instructions.
The monitors cost $100 to $300 and were sold between October 1999 and September 2013 at Babies R Us/Toys R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Meijer, Sears, Walmart, Amazon.com, Target.com, Overstock.com, and almost 70 small baby-specialty stores.
