CPSC Issues Suffocation Warning for OmvedTherapies Baby Pillows

OmvedTherapies Baby PillowsThe Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a warning about OmvedTherapies Baby Pillows, which are in violation of the federal ban. These pillows pose a suffocation risk for infants. The manufacturer, Omved Lifestyle Pvt. Ltd., of India, has refused to recall the products, which means they are still being sold.

Per the CPSC release:

OmvedTherapies infant pillows [pose] a suffocation hazard to infants. The pillows violate the infant pillow ban because of their flexible fabric covering, loose filling, and ability to easily flatten and conform to an infant’s body or face.

The pillows were sold online at Amazon.com and Omved.com from February 2023 through February 2024 for between $20 and $30. The pillowcase is light gray with a bright yellow zipper and has the Omved logo of a large circle with a smaller circle beside it on the corner of the case. The inner pillow is filled with lavender and mustard seeds. The small pillow is 7.5 inches by 9.8 inches and the large pillow is 7.9 inches by 13.8 inches. The pillow also came with the “Baby Care Kit” and the “Mom & Baby Care” kit.

This is the time in under a month that the CPSC has issued a notice about a child product that violates The Safe Sleep for Babies Act. In March, Jool Baby finally recalled its Nova Baby Infant Swings, which also posed a suffocation hazard and were in violation of federal law.
