Baby Sak Infant Bean Bag Cushions Recalled
Pembroke Pines, FL (SafetyAlerts) - Baby Sak is recalling
its Baby Sak bean bag infant cushions because of a suffocation risk. Although no deaths
have been reported involving Baby Sak, the Commission has received reports of 19 infants
being found dead lying face down on similar products.
Baby Sak is a fabric covered, polystyrene pellet-filled cushion intended for use with
infants. The name "Baby Sak" appears on the restraint straps attached to the
product. Since 1988 approximately 125 Baby Sak cushions have been sold for $15.00 each,
exclusively at local craft shows in southern Florida.
Baby Sak and the CPSC staff urge consumers who own these products to stop using them
immediately. Baby Sak will exchange other infant products of equal retail value for return
of the cushions. For instructions on returning the cushion and obtaining the exchange
