If you use a PeaPod or PeaPod Plus Travel Bed for your small children when you go camping, stop using it. Safety officials say they could be very dangerous.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says KidCo Inc. is recalling 220,000 of the mini-tents.
The problem is that children can get trapped between the air mattress and the side of the tent, which could cause the child to suffocate.
The CPSC says it knows of six children who became trapped. Two of them were found crying underneath the mattress, which had not been properly inserted into the tent.
The travel beds were sold from January 2005 to the present on Amazon.com and at independent child specialty stores for $70 to $100.
Don’t use the travel beds until you get a free repair kit. To receive it, you can call KidCo at 855-847-8600 , or visit their website at kidco.com/recall-information.
