Latest Recalls Involve Video Baby Monitors

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There are two important recalls for parents of young children.

Two infant deaths have been linked to baby video monitors with electrical cords made by Summer Infant.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission also says a 20-month-old boy from Pittsburgh was found with the camera cord wrapped around his neck.

The boy was not injured.

The monitors are being recalled, and new warning labels will be added.

Also, rechargeable batteries sold with certain “Slim and Secure” Video Monitors are being recalled.

The batteries can overheat and rupture.

    What ever happened to watching your kids and not placing dangerous items where they can get to them? I think they call it common sense.

  2. Dave says:

    The recall is to add a label? Let me guess, the label will say “keep cord away from reach of infant.” Is the world so dumbed down that a parent needs to be told this?!?! People need to take responsibility!

    I have a summer infant monitor, I never leave it where the baby can get it, and if you really want to keep the cord away, you can put an outlet near the ceiling and plug it in up there where the cord is totally out of reach.
