220,000 PeaPod and PeaPod Plus Travel beds, made my KidCo, are being recalled due to suffocation and entrapment risks. If a baby or small child rolls off of the inflatable mattress, he could become trapped in the tight space near the side wall of the tent.  A 5 month old New York boy was found dead in one of these tents last year and the CPSC is aware of three other children who became trapped.
