A children's safety equipment manufacturer has agreed to recall about 220,000 infant travel beds after reports of one infant's death and nine others entrapped or distressed while inside the portable sleep tents.
KidCo.'s Pea Pod Travel Crib has an air mattress that fits into a zippered pocket in the floor of the domed tent, which collapses for easy transport. But if the mattress is placed in the floor of the tent, an infant's head could lodge between the mattress and the tent's side, making breathing impossible.
KidCo is offering kits to address the danger. The kits include supports that strengthen the sides of the tent and a thinner air mattress.
Consumers can call KidCo toll-free at 855-847-8600 or visit www.kidco.com.
