Infant sleeping tent recalled after baby death

(CNN) - 220,000 portable sleep tents for infants and small children are being voluntarily recalled because of a safety hazard. 

The recall of the PeaPod and PeaPod Plus Travel beds took place in part, after a 5-month-old boy was found dead last year with his face pressed against the wall of the tent. 

There are other reports of children who had problems with the tent's mattress. 

The travel tents were made in China and sold at independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from January 2005 until now. 

They cost between $70 and $100. 

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the tents have a zippered side and an inflatable air mattress that fits into a zippered pocket. 

Consumers are being warned to stop using the tents immediately and contact KidCo Inc.  

The following models and corresponding tent fabric colors are included in this recall:

P100 Teal
P101 Red
P102 Lime
P103 Periwinkle
P104 Ocean
P201 Princess/Red
P202 Camouflage
P203 Quick Silver
P204 Sagebrush
P205 Cardinal
P900CS Green

The model number can be found on a small tag on the underside of the product.
