Important Safety Information about
baby monitors from Fisher-Price!
Just wanted to share this information
with my fans.
I received the following email
The CPSC and JPMA and juvenile product manufacturers are working together to help remind parents and caregivers that cords on baby audio and video monitors present a strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers when placed within a child’s reach.
Since 2002, seven infants and toddlers were strangled in baby monitor cords, and three infants and toddlers nearly strangled. The victims involved were as young as 6 months old to 20 months old.
In an effort to prevent infants and young children from strangling in monitor cords, CPSC and JPMA and other juvenile product manufacturers urge parents to:
- Immediately check the location of all monitors and other products with electrical cords—including those mounted on the wall—to make sure cords are out of your child’s reach.
- Place cords at least three feet away from any part of the crib, bassinet, play yard, or other safe sleep environment.
- Never position a monitor inside or on the edge of a crib.
- Remember, at least three feet away is where your monitor should stay.
Please visit www.service.mattel.com to request free permanent electric cord warning labels about the strangulation risk to affix to the cords of your baby monitor.
Please note that you will receive 3 warning labels in your order. There will be a warning label for the electric cords to the transmitter and the electric cords of the receivers.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please call 1-800-432-5437 Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 AM and 6 PM Eastern Time.
