"CPSC is warning parents and caregivers that these baby recliners contain defects in the design, warnings and instructions, which pose a substantial risk of injury and death to infants," the CPSC said in a statement.
There was an initial recall of the product in 2010 after one child died and several other fell out or nearly fell out, according to CPSC. Although there have been several upgrades and warnings added to the recliners, CPSC has continued to recieve reports of child injury and death as a result of using the product, leading to the second recall.
