U.S. Mom's "Baby's Cloud" Infant Cushions Recalled
Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission staff is urging consumers to destroy immediately any
"Baby's Cloud" infant cushions in their possession because of a suffocation
risk. The Baby's Cloud infant cushion was manufactured by U.S. Mom's, Las Vegas, NV. 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 a U.S. Mom's product.
U.S. Mom's sold about 3,500 infant cushions nationwide in small retail stores from 1985 to
1988 when it went out of business. Its primary retailer, GEMCO, is also out of business.
Because these firms are out of business, the Commission staff urges consumers to destroy
the product immediately.
The Baby's Cloud cushion is a fabric covered, polystyrene pellet-filled cushion intended
for use with infants. The manufacturer's name is attached to the product along with
information concerning fiber content.
