    I have just read the box and mine says designed in Canada, made in China, distributed by a company in Victoria. We purchased it in 2008.

    It's heartbreaking for the families, but it reminds me of the bumbo recall to add straps (as well as many other recalls). You need to use common sense.
    Exactly! My unit is 4 years old. Used for 2 bubs. Cord goes out the slats under the mattress the under a set of drawers so its not slack anywhere to get pulled.

    You can also turn the sensor part off so it is only sound (doesn't beep).

    It's awful but common sense needs to be used with lots of things.
    Since having kids I've heard of varied avoidable babies deaths, all tragic and must be awful for those involved - strangulation from blind cords / plastic nappy bag suffocation where baby could reach changetable next to cot / cosleeping deaths etc.
    I've had a close friend lose a toddler through an accident which on paper is "avoidable" but could happen to anyone. it breaks my heart hearing of them

    Mine is model # AC201 and was purchased in Australia in 2011. I couldn't imagine they would use the same modek # for a different design

    On the Angelcare website, they have contact details for the Australian distributor - I've found their distributor to be very helpful in the past when I needed my parent unit replaced (have no idea where my original one went! Vanished off the face of the earth!).

    I also think that this product is safe providing it is set up properly as others have detailed. People gotta use common sense.
