Mayborn cites strangulation hazard in baby-monitor recall

Email to a Friend

July 28, 2014—Mayborn USA recalled its Tommee Tippee Monitor with Movement Sensor Pad, because a child can pull the sensor-pad cord into the crib and wrap the cord around his/her neck. This poses a strangulation hazard.

The product was sold in three parts; the baby-monitor unit, the movement sensor pad and the parent unit. Both units have a screen and a keypad. The pad is white and has a 10-foot cord that runs from the pad to the baby-monitor unit. The affected model numbers are 1082S and 1094S. Model 1094S includes a night-vision video camera. The model number is printed on the bottom of the base of the charger and on the bottom of the camera.

The baby monitor was sold at Babies R Us and Toys R Us stores nationwide and at amazon.com. No injuries were reported. Consumers should make sure that all cords are out of reach of the child and should contact Mayborn for a free cord cover kit that includes revised instructions, a new electric-cord warning label and a rigid protective cord cover through which the sensor-pad cord can be threaded.

For more information, consumers should call Mayborn at 866/214-1537 Monday–Friday 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. ET or go to tommeetippee.us.
