TORONTO – An American company has issued a recall on nearly 30,000 baby monitors sold in North America due to some parts being a potential strangulation hazard.

The recall includes two models of Tommee Tippee Monitor with movement sensor pads.

The specific model numbers affected by the recall include 1082S and 1094S that have been sold since 2011.

Health Canada says 3,628 units were sold in Canada.

The recall notice says the cord attached to the baby monitor’s movement sensor pads could potentially strangle an infant if it were pulled into the crib.

Neither Health Canada nor the company have received any reports of injuries.

People who’ve bought the baby monitor are asked to immediately make sure the cord is out of reach from the child and to contact the company, Mayborn USA Inc., at 1-866-214-1537.

The company is also offering a “cord cover kit” to mitigate the hazard.
