"These types of incidents are heartbreaking," Acting Chairman Robert S. Adler, CPSC commissioner, said in a statement. "Loungers and pillow-like products are not safe for infant sleep, due to the risk of suffocation. Since we know that infants sleep so much of the time — even in products not intended for sleep — and since suffocation can happen so quickly, these Boppy lounger products are simply too risky to remain on the market." headtopics.com
