Tailored Baby, Inc. "Comfort Cushion" Infant Cushions Recalled

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 address to receive either a free shopping cart restraint (Safety Sitter, Model #2082), or an Infant Seat Cushion Cover (Model #1391). Specify which exchange product you desire.

Tailored Baby, Inc.
Cushion Exchange
500 Library Street
San Fernando, CA 91340

Or, return the product directly to the place of purchase for a refund of the purchase price.
