Gold, Inc.  and Pinky Baby Products  Infant Bean Bag Cushions Recalled

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 immediately.

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 the paper tag with the manufacturer's name to the address listed below:

For Support Sack:
Gold, Inc.
4999 Oakland
Denver, CO 80239
For Cozy Cushion:
Pinky Baby Products
8450 Westpark, Suite 104
Houston, TX 77063

Consumers may also return the product to place of purchase for a refund.
