PeaPod Travel Beds by KidCo Recalled!

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with KidCo Inc is recalling about 220,000 PeaPod and PeaPod Plus Travel Beds. The KidCo PeaPod Travel Beds and PeaPod Plus Travel Beds are portable sleep tents to be used from birth to 3+ years. They have a zippered side for putting in and taking out the child and 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.

The recall is due to a few reported cases of babies rolling off the edge off the inflatable air mattress and get trapped between the mattress and side of the tent potentially causing suffocation. These tents were sold from January 2005 to the present.

If you own one of the below models, 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 December 2012. 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.
