Based on the Summer Infant website, it looks like the recall is applying to all of their monitors and the remedy is the distribution of a safe installation guide.

My understanding is that the product itself does not have any manufacturing flaws, but it is unsafe when installed too close to the crib.

I read this ealier today. I feel very bad for any parent who had a child pass or be injured from the monitors, but it is almost common sense. It wasn’t a manufacturing defect (so they weren’t electricuting kids or exploding or anything), it was from the cords being too close to the child causing then to get caught and strangled. As long as you keep the cords out of reach of the children (the article I read suggested at least 3 feet), your children will be safe so you don’t have to choose another monitor or returns yours if you have it. The only changes they are making is putting a warning label and clearer instructions about keeping the cords away from the baby.

We registered for one of their video monitors and I still fully plan on using it since it sounds like the deaths, as sad as they are, were caused by user error.  I don’t plan on mounting a camera on our crib, so I think HOPE that we’ll be okay.
