Gold, Inc. and Pinky Baby Products Infant Bean Bag
Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - Gold, Inc., of Denver,
CO, and Pinky Baby Products, of Houston, TX, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission, are voluntarily recalling their firms' infant bean bag cushions because
of a suffocation risk. These firms have sold approximately 146,000 cushions since 1988.
The Commission has received 19 reports that an infant was found dead lying face-down on an
infant bean bag cushion. None of the reported deaths involves products sold by Gold, Inc.
or Pinky Baby Products.
Each of these products is a fabric covered, polystyrene pellet-filled cushion intended for
use with infants. All of the Support Sack cushions and a small number of the Cozy Cushion
products are equipped with restraining waist and crotch straps. The manufacturer's name is
attached to the product along with information concerning fiber content.
Both manufacturers and the Commission staff urge consumers to stop using these products
Consumers who would like to receive a free infant product in exchange for the bean bag
cushion should cut a 6" square from the product's cover. Return the fabric square and
