PeaPod Travel Tents
KidCo Inc., of Libertyville, IL announced a voluntary recall of PeaPod and PeaPod Plus Travel Beds because infants and young children can roll off the edge of the inflatable air mattress, become entrapped between the mattress and the fabric sides of the tent, and suffocate. The recalled travel beds are small, portable sleep tents marketed for use by infants from birth to 3+ years, depending on the model. The tents have a zippered side for putting in and taking out the child and have an inflatable air mattress that fits into a zippered pocket underneath the floor of the tent. The tents fold into a compact round shape and come with a fabric bag for storage and transport. Go here for a complete list of recalled model numbers and tent colors. The model number can be found on a small tag on the underside of the product.
Consumers should immediately stop using the tents and contact KidCo to get a free repair kit. The kits will vary depending on the model and will be shipped to consumers starting in 12/12. Contact KidCo toll-free at (855) 847-8600 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website to receive the kit.
