Tailored Baby, Inc. "Comfort Cushion" Infant Cushions
San Fernando, CA (SafetyAlerts) - Tailored Baby, Inc. is
voluntarily recalling its "Comfort Cushion" infant cushions because of a
suffocation risk identified in these types of products. Although the Tailored Baby Comfort
Cushion is not known to be involved in any safety-related incident, the CPSC has received
19 reports that an infant was found dead lying face-down on infant bean bag cushions made
by other firms.
The Comfort Cushion product 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.
Approximately 78,000 Comfort Cushions were sold nationwide from 1988 through April, 1990.
The Commission staff urges consumers to stop using these cushions immediately.
Consumers who have a Comfort Cushion may return the paper tag with the manufacturer's
name, along with a six square inch piece of fabric cut from the cover, to the following
