A sixth baby has died because of a recalled infant recliner, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Experts at the CPSC are urging parents and caregivers to stop using the “Nap Nanny” and the “Nap Nanny Chill” recliners immediately.

The latest incident occurred in Hopatcong, N.J., where an 8-month-old girl died after she was trapped between the product and a crib bumper, the safety commission said.

Problems with the recliners have been reported since 2010, through recalls and a legal settlement against the now out-of-business firm that sold the recliners.

The CPSC is warning that, although the product is no longer sold in stores, it could still be sold at yard sales, online, or given as a hand-me-down gift.
