WASHINGTON — A children’s product maker is recalling about 165,000 baby recliners linked to at least five infant deaths and dozens of reports of children falling or hanging over the side of the seats.

Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, Pa., announced the recall of its Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners as part of a settlement with the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Since 2009, the commission said it received at least 92 incident reports involving the products. The commission said four infants died in Nap Nanny Generation Two recliners and a fifth died using the Chill model.

Four national retailers agreed to recall more than 150,000 of the recliners last year after the commission said the manufacturer was unable or unwilling to participate. The manufacturer is no longer in business.
