Mayborn USA Inc. is recalling about 25,000 Tommee Tippee monitors with movement sensor pads because a child can pull the sensor pad cord into the crib, posing a strangulation hazard.
This recall involves two models of the Tommee Tippee Movement and Sound Baby Monitors with Sensor Pads. Both models come with a sensor pad that fits under the baby’s crib mattress and sounds an alarm if no movement is detected for 20 seconds. The recalled products include models 1082S and 1094S. Model numbers are located on the bottom of the base of the recharger and also on the bottom of the camera.
They were sold at Toys “R” Us/Babies “R” Us stores and Amazon.com, since September 2011 for approximately $150.
Consumers should make sure all monitor cords are out of reach of the child and contact Mayborn USA for a free cord cover kit that includes rigid protective cord covers through which the sensor pad cords can be threaded, a new, permanent electric cord warning label about the strangulation risk, and revised instructions.
For more information, contact Mayborn USA toll free at 1-866-214-1537 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or online at www.tommeetippee.us.
