Due to reports of injuries and deaths, and concerns for children's safety, this past month the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) filed Administrative Complaints against the manufacturers of high-powered magnets and infant recliners.

The second complaint alleges that the Nap Nanny Generation One and Two, and Chill model infant recliners contain defects in their design, warnings and instructions, which pose a substantial risk of injury and death to infants. CPSC has received 80 reports of incidents involving ingestion of high powered magnets, resulting in 79 reports seeking medical intervention. CPSC is aware of five infants who died in infant recliners and has received a total of over 70 additional incident reports of children nearly falling out of the product.
