Baby's Death Leads to Recall of Popular Infant Travel Bed

Just in the nick of time for holiday travel, Illinois-based KidCo is recalling their popular PeaPod Travel Beds and PeaPod Plus Travel Beds. Tragically, a 5-month-old baby boy suffocated last year when he rolled between one of the portable crib tent's fabric walls and its inflatable air mattress. The boy was napping in the Pea Pod with his twin sister during a family visit with relatives. His death was the worst of 10 reported incidents which led to the recall.

KidCo is not offering a refund. Instead, it is providing a free kit that includes a thinner air mattress and supports that eliminate the gap.

Nancy Cowles, executive director of a consumer safety group called Kids in Danger, remains concerned, and told the Associated Press, "This was a product intended for a baby to sleep in. But parents don't realize that because it's not a crib or a bassinette or a play yard, there's no standard, it's not tested to be safe for sleeping."


The AP reports that, "For more information, consumers can call KidCo toll-free at 855-847-8600 between 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST Monday through Friday or visit the company's website at and click on "recall info" to receive the kit."
