Nap Nanny baby recliners -- hailed by parents nationwide as a salvation from sleepless nights for infants with reflux, colic and other issues -- are being recalled after a 4-month-old Michigan girl was found dead in one this month, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

Baby Matters, which makes Nap Nanny, said 30,000 of the recliners are subject to the recall. The recalled recliners -- made in China and the U.S. -- were sold nationwide for about $130.

The CPSC said the girl who died was in the harness on the recliner but was found hanging over the side, stuck between a crib bumper and the Nap Nanny. Another infant also fell over the side of a Nap Nanny, despite being buckled in, and also got trapped between the recliner and crib, but only suffered a cut forehead. The CPSC said 21 other incidents involving the product were reported to the company by consumers, mostly with infants younger than five months falling over the side.
