600,000 baby monitors recalled after two infants die


A warning for people who own an AngelCare baby monitor.  The company is recalling 600,000 of its baby monitors after the deaths of two infants due to strangulation.

The recall affects all versions of AngelCare's movement and sound monitors with sensor pads.  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says a cord attached to the sensor pad poses a strangulation risk.

Two infants have died because of the hazard and two others were entangled by the cord.  The monitors were sold from 1999 to 2013.
