RECALL: Sleep Positioners
In the last 13 years, U.S. officials have received 12 reports of infants who suffocated because of sleep positioner products.
Sleep positioners sometimes are marketed with the claim that they can reduce gastroesophageal reflux disease, so-called "flat head syndrome", and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), but can suffocate babies and cause other harm, CPSC and FDA officials said in the statement.
