WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – A children’s safety equipment maker issued a recall of nearly 250,000 infant travel beds after an infant died from one of the products.

Developer Kid Co is offering a repair kit to parents who purchased the defective PeaPod Travel Tents that put infants and young children at risk of suffocating.

The defect has caused the death of one infant, and nine others – three in Canada and six in the U.S. – to roll off the edge of the inflatable mattress and become entrapped between the mattress and the fabric sides of the tent – leading to suffocation or distress.

To receive the repair kit that includes a thinner replacement air mattress and braces that will strengthen the sides of the tent, parents need to fill out a form – which can be found here – and submit it to KidCo.

Replacement kits will be mailed out staring in mid December.

If you have purchased any of the following models, stop using it immediately:

PeaPod Models: P100, P101, P102, P103, P104

PeaPod Plus Models: P201, P202, P203, P204, P205, P900CS
