Whoa, Leslie.. Gudel, who has been with CSN for 10+ years now is some trouble with the government, reported by DeadSpin.com. She has been strictly a Phils reporter for the past couples of years BUT she also had a side business. She came up with the idea of the “Nap Nanny” for babies. The “Nap Nanny” is a foam recliner meant to reduce gas and gently put the baby to sleep. She has done very well with it. She has sold over a 150,000 recliners. Well, there is one problem. There has been 5 babies that has died from it.. Jesus…
She really did not check to see if this thing worked properly it seems. The Consumer Product Safety Commission filed a formal complaint against Gudel’s company, claiming it has received more than 70 reports of infants falling out of the recliner. Here is Leslie statement..
The filing of CPSC’s complaint does not mean it’s illegal to sell the Nap Nanny. Anyone who wants to sell the Nap Nanny certainly can, for now. The CPSC may succeed in its attempt to legally ban the sale of the product, but there’s no telling whether that will happen or how long that will take. It matters little, because very few Nap Nannys remain on the shelves. The ongoing battle with the CPSC cost us so much money that it forced us out of business a month ago.
Another small business is gone. Twenty-two Americans are out of work between Nap Nanny and our supplier. This doesn’t take into account the financial impact our closure has had on our other U.S. suppliers.
For those consumers who have reached out to us since learning we closed, THANK YOU for your support. It means more to us than you will ever know. For those of you who have asked for a Nap Nanny and can’t find one at a retailer, I’m sorry we can’t be there for you. I set out to make a product that comforted babies and improved infant sleep. I know we accomplished this mission. I’m sorry we won’t be around to carry it on any longer.
Not the news I was looking for today in the Phils world..
