Baby Monitors Recalled After 2 Infant Deaths Reported
" BOSTON (CBS) — Angelcare Monitors Inc. is voluntarily recalling 600,000 baby monitors after the death of two infants due to strangulation.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the cord attached to the baby monitor’s sensor pad, which is placed under the crib mattress, poses a strangulation risk if the child pulls the cord into the crib.

The CPSC says, in November 2011, a 13-month-old girl died in San Diego, California, and, in August 2004, an 8-month-old girl died in Salem, Oregon.

The CPSC says there have been two reports of infants who became entangled in cords of Angelcare baby monitor models, which did not result in fatalities.

The recall involves the Movement and Sound Monitor manufactured by Angelcare. This design of baby monitor includes a unique sensor pad placed inside the crib, under the mattress, to monitor movement of the baby. An electrical cord about 11 feet long is permanently connected from the sensor pad to the nursery monitor unit "
