Portable baby recliners that are supposed to help fussy babies sleep better are being recalled after the death of an infant.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall Monday of 30,000 Nap Nanny recliners made by Baby Matters of Berwyn, Pennsylvania.
The commission says it's investigating a report that a 4-month-old girl from Royal Oak, Michigan, died in a Nap Nanny that was being used in a crib.
The agency says it is aware of 22 reports of infants, mostly under 5 months, falling over the side of the Nap Nanny despite most of the babies being strapped into the harness on the recliner.
