Angelcare Recall 2013

Recall Alert! Angelcare Pulls 600,000 Baby Monitors From Shelves

Moms, make sure to check out your baby monitor! Angelcare is voluntarily recalling its Movement and Sound Baby Monitors with Sensor Pads. The recall occurs after the company received reports of two infant cord strangulation deaths. The affected products were manufactured between 1993 and 2013.

All versions of Angelcare sensor monitors are included in the 600,000-unit recall, including models in the AC1100 series, AC201 series, AC300 series, AC301 series, AC401 series, AC601 series, and 49255 that do not contain cord covers. Parents who own these models should remove them from their children's cribs immediately, as the cord attached to the monitor’s sensor pad can be pulled into the crib, and contact Angelcare for instructions on how to receive a repair kit.

I used this product with my son until he was 9 months old and I LOVED it - I don't understand how a child could possibly come into contact with the cord??? Would it be the one attached to the sensor pad? If so, the pad is placed completely underneath the mattress - maybe these people used it completely incorrectly, otherwise I don't see how this could have happened. Regardless, bravo to this company for voluntarily recalling this product for further review.

I've used this Product with Both my daughters when they we're infants... I noticed right away the cord and kept tucked away...There is now way an infant could strangle themselves if it correctly tucked under the mattress. On top of this once the baby grows pass 6 months old there's no reason to attach the Monitoring Pad. It's only good for babies not toddlers
