The agency has received two reports of infants rolling over and getting their faces trapped between the mattress and the side of the KidCo PeaPod. The indoor/outdoor travel bed is a pop-up inflatable bed with nylon zip-up side panels. It folds back up into its storage bag.
"Health Canada is currently in discussions with the company about how it will address the safety concerns related to the use of this product," the agency said. "In the meantime, the department is warning consumers to immediately stop using the product for infants under one year of age."
KidCo says on its website that pillows, comforters, padding or other bedding should not be used inside the PeaPod because they can also pose a suffocation hazard.
