If health experts are to be believed then travel beds (as are called designed for infants) are not at all fit for the children below one year and so parents should stop using them.
The above warnings have come from Health Canada, who has recently blocked the sale of the travel bed for infants after two recent reports of infants getting trapped in them.
The other way of notifying people about the issue could have been an idea of a blanket recall of all those products that have already been purchased but Health Minister Ms. Leona Aglukkaq doesn't want to opt for one.
Instead, she preferred warning parents to stop using the KidCo PeaPod if their child is under the age of one as experts believe that certain suffocation risks are associated with the product following the report of two such instances in which the infants rolled over and their faces got trapped between the mattress and the side of the product.
The issue came to light on Aug. 22, 2012, with a report that was submitted by a Canadian retailer to the department saying that a customer has returned the product as his five-month-old child was almost left suffocated in the travel bed after he rolled over. A similar second report followed on Oct. 9 also in which the consumer said that they found their four-month old in apparent respiratory distress.
The stop-sale order is now in effect until some conclusions are drawn over the safety concerns.
