Online marketplace eBay has agreed to ban all infant inclined sleepers from its website. The ban is based on information from Consumer Reports and the Consumer Product Safety Commission and includes those sleepers that have not been recalled.
The company made the decision in response to a letter that from Consumer Reports, sent last week, to eBay and 14 other retailers, urging them to remove the sleepers because the products have been linked with a reported 73 infant deaths.
In response, eBay said that the company has begun enforcing the ban by removing “particularly risky” inclined sleepers” including the Evenflo Pillo Portable Napper, the Baby Delight Go With Me Sway Portable Infant Rocker, and the Hiccapop DayDreamer.
